Cooper's Bath

May 26, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

 On a warm evening just before 7 p.m. on May 3, 2020, a Cooper's Hawk landed in my backyard birdbath. By its markings and trusting behavior, I knew this was a young bird. I had never seen it there before. Over the next two minutes, it allowed me to slip within 10 yards to capture's its bath in warm light. It twice dipped into the fresh water before hopping on the edge of the bath. There, it turned, raised and flexed its left leg, shook, and in a flash departed.
