Backyard Raptors 3

Postby Didereaux » Mon May 22, 2017 9:06 pm

Adult Cooper's Hawk. Hard to tell from a Sharp-shinned except that the Cooper's is slightly larger, the dark cap does not extend down the nape of the neck, the feet and talons are thicker and coarser, the tail is slightly rounded, and the eyes are set slightly forward in a more blocky skull. Colors are identical in both species. The Sharpie specializes i smaller songbirds while the Cooper's prefers the larger ones.

There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.

I'm in love with this image every way there is, the color, sharpness, pose, background, and that stare! Love it! S-

Terrific picture! Gaw-juss bird! :)
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
