Eastside Cooper's Hawk

Coming back from a ride in the Salt Creek valley, I was thinking how few birds I had seen or heard in the woods, actually not that surprising in the cold damp December weather. I was on the eastside of town, turning the corner on Longview St. and found this Cooper’s Hawk on a stump. I’ve seen one before on the Polly Grimshaw Trail, they patrol the corridor for the rabbits that are everywhere. I assume this one fledged in Dunn Woods earlier this spring.
