Cooper’s Hawk on the Hunt

I regularly drive up Highway 70 above Marysville,CA.  It’s orchard country,and I often catch glimpses of a Cooper’s Hawk swooping low through the trees in pursuit of some small bird that is frantically trying to evade those deadly talons.

Immature Cooper’s Hawk

A photo and sketch of a young Cooper’s Hawk that I came across the other day.

through the trees.

I recently posted about a low flying Cooper’s hawk, but the only photo of mine that I had was of one flying overhead. I know; he was up there for a long time! The other day a Cooper’s hawk buzzed me again; and he was gone before I could even look at my camera. Recently, however, I got this shot of a Cooper’s flying through the trees out by the Sacrament river.
