Cooper’s Hawk

When – 14th May, 2017
Where – Peace Valley Park, South-west corner

As we walked along the trail, in a clump of trees near the dam at the south-west corner of Peace Valley Park, there was a flurry of activity. A lot of small birds were loudly chirping and jumping between branches. Upon sneaking closer, we saw that it was a Cooper’s Hawk quietly sitting on a branch that had the others agitated. Despite the heavy shade, and overcast skies, I managed to take a decent photo of it through the foliage.

Further along the trail, on the far side of the dam, this Brown-headed Cowbird struck a nice pose.
