Cooper

Not much going on in the garden these cold winter days. There are a lot of feeders and the heated bird bath. Several trees have berries on but are fast disppearing because of the heavy snow cover. Here you see a Cooper Hawk having lunch. She comes about twice a week and isn't very shy. I guess that's what hunger does. She feeds on Mourning Doves, only takes what she can eat and finishes it completely. Last summer when she was feeding her hatchlings she came more often, but they must have left for their own territory now. I call her Cooper, not very imaginative. She's a beautiful bird.
