Birds of the Sanctuary: Cooper's Hawk
Note that I've been trying to photograph this hawk for years, and I don't have much to go on here. The rounded tail, wing markings, and yellow legs and feet are all that can be discerned from this very rare close-up; based on the spotted head, it might be a juvenile. I've seen these formidable hunters snatch squirrels off of the ground right next to my camper, and I hear them screeching year round.
