Cooper's Hawk & Peregrine Falcon - Feb. 20 & 21, 2011

The young Cooper's Hawk , now in it's 2nd year, made another run at the feeder birds this morning, missed again. He perched on one of the bird houses just outside the kitchen window for these shots. That's the house being reflected back to the camera in his eye.


A drive through Ipswich on the afternoon of the 20th found an adult Peregrine Falcon roosting on the steeple of the First United Methodist Church in the center of town. Joshua Bouchard of Ipswich originally pointed out this bird on his Flickr account. Thanks Joshua!
