There seems to be at least three different Cooper's Hawks visiting the feeders this past week. After the young female, we were visited by an adult female, and then today Kathi noticed an adult male at the feeder. He sat for at least two minutes just eight feet away from the living room window allowing me to snap off about twenty pics. The one below is probably the best.

As you can see from this cropped head and shoulders shot, this adult male was calling a single loud note much like the call heard last week. I guess this is a common call which I somehow have never heard before - a good reminder that there is always so much to learn!

There were also some signs of spring this week with returning Pine Siskin heard and a small group of Canada Geese flying over in early morning. With the warmer weather this coming weekend there should be lots of waterfowl pouring in. Can't wait!
