Cooper's Hawk

Yesterday my friend and I watched as a hawk chased a Kingfisher, not just once, but twice.  We could not believe what we were seeing.  It almost appeared as if the Kingfisher was trying to engage the hawk in a game of chase.

This morning, we went early hoping to catch eagles.  Yes, we saw several but overcast skies made for difficult shooting.  We had just walked back up to the berm that extends beyond the dam when in flies the same hawk and sat in a nearby tree.  We were both thrilled at the sighting and could not believe it came in so close to us.

Don't you just love it when the wildlife are so accommodating!?!

Thanks Liz, Indeed it is a treat when nature cooperates. Definitely a juvenile hawk that has not developed a strong fear of humans yet.

Thanks Gladys. It was a sweet treat! Headed out this morning to hopefully catch the otters.
