Cooper's Hawk in North Berkeley


Claude Lyneis
 

This morning I looked out the back window of our house in the 700 block of Keeler and saw a Cooper’s Hawk on the deck railing.  It took me some time to unpack my Nikon, but then it landed on the bird feeder structure.  Luck was with me and
I got  some photos.  It looks like an immature Cooper’s Hawk, probably the one my wife saw take a small bird about three months ago.  A beautiful bird with scary talons.
