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.

Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) – 1 in a series

This Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) has become an almost daily visitor to the garden in the last few weeks, so I’ll be sharing a series of video clips of its behaviors for those interested in raptors.

In this video you can see the hawk spreading its wings when a squirrel on the ground approaches too closely. I have seen this behavior several times in the past. sometimes with the squirrel actively chasing off the hawk.
