Cooper's Hawk

I link to a prior post on Cooper's hawks that we have in our neighborhood. I believe we have another nesting pair this year, probably in one of our neighbor's huge trees. 

This past Saturday I noticed a Cooper's hawk standing on our back deck. Only after reviewing photos do I see the bird it had in its talons. 

Later it flew onto a low branch of a nearby tree and started to devour the bird. That's when I noticed the birds claws which identified the prey as a bird, even though I'm not sure what kind of bird it is.

  1. Wow, those last two pictures are amazing. I have never considered that a bird would eat another bird.
