Morning Visitor

This is the visitor in our back yard this morning. We put up this partial barn loom as a place to hang bird feeders, but we've never attracted anything but songbirds and quail - until today. I don't know what he is, but he's big. He didn’t stay long, but that’s okay. I had to leave for work. I’m just glad he came at all.

I would have to get out the hawk field guide and it is at home... what a great shot, though.

Laura emailed me to say that it's a juvenile Cooper's hawk. She would know - she's the ornithologist. I looked it up tonight in Peterson's and I'd have to say that she's right.
