Friday's Foto

I realize that this is my second "Friday's Foto" Cooper's Hawk this year, but I couldn't pass over this magnificent adult raptor. Like the smaller, related Sharp-shinned Hawk, this large accipiter is a frequent visitor to bird feeders. Named after American naturalist William Cooper, this woodland raptor is a common overwintering raptor around New York City.
