Cooper's at work...

(click on the image for larger version)

Check out this adult Cooper’s Hawk over the remains of a Mourning Dove taken yesterday in our backyard. Oh, the temptation for sneaking out the garage door, but I didn’t want to flush the bird from its fresh meal. Rather, I chose to photograph through our patio window - the sharpness isn’t what it might have been, but the posture, shape and color of the bird is still super cool.
