Friday's Fine Feathered Friend
I looked out my patio door as I was working here at the computer, and I gasped to see this handsome bird perched on a limb of the Persian Vitex. I believe this is a Cooper's Hawk, based on the identification guidelines on Cornell's ornithology site. He looked both regal and serene as he sat in the tree but before I could grab my camera, he moved to the fence. I was only able to get a single shot before he flew away. The feeders remain deserted so he must still be in the area somewhere.
