I glanced out the window this afternoon, while I was on the phone with my husband, and didn't see any birds at the feeders. I quickly scanned my yard and my neighbors yard and I spotted the Cooper's Hawk in the neighbor's tree. I asked my husband if I could call him right back because I wanted to try and get a picture of the hawk. Thankfully he is a good sport and understanding of my current blog/photography/birding obsession.
I took a few pictures from the landing window, which didn't turn out well. I was concerned that it would fly away when I opened the patio door but it didn't. I kept taking pictures as I stepped closer and closer to the back of my yard. I didn't get very far before the Cooper's hawk flew away but at least I got a better picture than the ones from inside the house.
I was freezing when I went back inside since there was no time to grab a coat. I made a cup of hot chocolate and promptly called my sweet hubby back.
