White pelicans are regular visitors to the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve but can seem out of place to many visitors who think of them only as seaside birds. Pelicans nest on freshwater lakes although they often feed on or near salt water.

Cooper’s Hawk in the garden again

Cooper's Hawk in the garden again

Cooper’s Hawk in the garden again

Our regular visits from our Cooper’s Hawk continue. This time instead of hunting and eating he simply sat atop our garden swing for quite a long while observing. After a while the squirrels will usually chase him off.

It is great watching natural behaviors play out in your own backyard.

Evidence

It looks like the Cooper’s Hawk has visited again, but this time it looks like it caught a pigeon instead of the usual mourning dove. I am not sure exactly when this happened as I only saw this evidence and not the attack itself.
