Cooper's Hawk

Cooper's Hawk
Immature Cooper's Hawk. Bird & Butterfly Garden, San Ysidro, California. March 2, 2014. Greg Gillson.
On my visit to the Bird & Butterfly Garden in the Tijuana River Valley this young Cooper's Hawk was right in the middle of the ring of Tamarisk trees. That's the exact spot where the Common Ground-Doves often hide out. Needless to say, there were no doves, nor very many other small birds, around due to this hunting bird of prey.
