I really like watching these guys take out critters in the yard. Many of them have lived here in the woods over the years. I rarely get to catch them with the camera. Saw these guys when I went downstairs this morning. Ran upstairs to grab the phone. Thought I took a bunch more photos, but these three were all I got. Soon as they saw me thru the window, they were gone. Best I could do with a galaxy phone. Hope they hang around so I can watch them do their work some more...

Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

We had one of those hanging around in our neighborhood a while ago. I got this shot of him. Looks like the same type of hawk.

Any experts here? Cooper's Hawk or a Sharp Shinned Hawk or neither. I had one of these little fellows visit me on my deer stand last year. Made my day.

Great images. I'm not an expert but it looks like the Cooper's Hawk that would nightly fly under our rear patio area and wedge itself up into a corner. It was probably immature. Nothing to stand on, just wedged up under the patio roof and two adjacent angled stuccoed walls.

It did that for a few months, then disappeared. It was fascinating to watch it settle into that tight corner for the night, gone in the early morning.
