Odd Visitor

No one was more surprised than I was, when I came home one Sunday afternoon to find this juvenile Cooper's Hawk just standing there in one of my birdbaths! I've only seen him from a distance, ever since.

This is what I'm talking about when I say "habitat in your backyard", people. You just never know what you'll see! Don't forget to click on the image!

Can you id hawks well? I have had coopers, sharp-shinned and red-tailed and the only ones I am sure about are the red-tailed. Guess he wanted a pedicure..LOL

I'm not the best. I had some help over at In fact, this photo caused quite some discussion over there in the Raptor section! You should try them if you have ID questions.
