Default Copper's Hawk

Newcomer to my neighborhood. Two of them starting flying around over our house just this weekend. This smaller of the two landed in a tree in my yard and I fortunately had my camera (no LT55 though ). They are very fast birds, unlike other hawks that circle in one spot, these guys seem to fly from horizon to horizon at top speed!!

Very well done Saly! I have one Cooper's around my house but they are very difficult birds to get close to.

Thank you Gordy, NileLily, Gordy, Alex, jj!! Yes, the Cooper's Hawk is impossible to capture in flight, but it's the only hawk I've seen that lands on lower branches of trees frequently, so I have several shots of them in trees.

Nice shot. One of ours swooped right over my head from behind yesterday as I was on the phone.
