One day this week all the birds stayed away from my bird feeder all morning. Since this was not a usual occurrence I checked out the woods in my backyard and spotted a hawk sitting in the maple tree. At first I thought it was the red tailed hawk who had come before, but after looking through the lens of my telephoto lens, we identified it as a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk. Later in the morning when I got too close while photographing him, he flew away and the rest of the birds slowly returned to the feeder. I spotted him again today sitting on the fence rail at the back of the yard, but he was gone before I could get my camera focused.
