Living out where we do, we see a lot of hawks flying around, hunting varmints, doing their thing.
However, not usually this close.
I walked outside to put the dog out (luckily, Murphy isn’t really ‘snack size’ anymore) yesterday evening only to have this coopers hawk fly not 10 feet over my head.Â He circled around and perched himself on the neighbor’s house.Â He stayed there long enough for me to grab the camera and snag a few pics.Â It was tough lighting conditions, but I was able to manage a couple shots. These photos don’t do justice to just how large this bird was. Incredible.
