Up Close and Personal

A few weeks ago as I worked in my office, I stretched and took a look out the office window into the back yard. Here’s what I saw:

That’s a young Cooper’s Hawk, and, judging from the enormous size, it’s a female. (Males are smaller.) 

Just as I switched to video mode, she took off:

I stepped across to the window on the other side of the room to see where she had headed, and was startled to come almost face to face with her:

She perched there for about five minutes, preening and watching everything around her pretty closely … well, watching like a hawk. Naturally.
