Cooper Hawk – the Red bloody Eyes

Post on April 15, 2013 Cooper's Hawk Hawk BirdsRaptor


Visited my old pal in the wood and found him perched with a kill but was well hidden in a shade. It’s really hard to capture the bloody red eyes on the male cooper hawk under indirect sunlight; but i caught him in a glimpse of moment when the head tilted.
