Male Cooper’s Hawk

Post on April 16, 2014 Cooper's Hawk Hawk BirdsRaptor


While the female incubating, the male Cooper’s hawk stands guard nearby for territory and nest defense during day time. I watch this aerial predator up close, on a perch about 10-12 feet high within minimum focus distance of my bare 500mm and he is intimidated by my presence at all.
