The Copper’s Hawk that I saw in my neighbor’s tree back in late Jan. was on the power lines in my back yard this evening!
I grabbed my camera and hoped he was still there.  While I was viewing the playback he flew away and I missed the “in flight” shot. ARG!
I was so excited to see him, but he must be here because there is a pair of nesting Mourning Doves nearby. I suspect he’s after the chicks. I hope he comes back so I get a flight shot, but I don’t want him to get the chicks!

  1. I know what you mean, but hey, he’s gotta eat too, right? Wonderful shot.

    • LOL! Yep! I think he found better eatin somewhere else. I haven’t seen him since this shot. 😦
      Thank you very much for the comment!
