Earlier today, when the eldest was outside with our dog Sandy, and was talking to us through our bedroom window, she looked up and said, “Look! A hawk! Oh wait – it’s a crow.” It somehow reminded me that when I was looking at my unedited bird photos for last week’s Feathered Friday, I noticed I had a bunch from a Cooper’s Hawk visit on July 9th, 2017.
Over the years, I’ve submitted a number of photos to the HawkWatch International Ask An Expert website, and I’ve gotten some amazing assistance with identifying the hawks in our neighborhood. So usually if I’ve labeled a photo, it’s either because I’ve gotten confirmation from them, or I was confident enough that the hawk looked like another that had been ID’ed. All of which means I’m about 99.99% sure this is actually a Cooper’s Hawk. 😜
I also found I had a handful from a hawk flyby in the spring of 2017, so I thought I’d include them here as well.
But before I get started with my latest contribution to the Feathered Friday tag that @melinda010100 has kept flying on the Steem blockchain, be sure to check out the post Melinda did for this week’s Feathered Friday – she has some adorable Hairy Woodpeckers captures!
Now here are nine shots from July 9th, 2017, and five shots from March 2nd, 2017 from my rather large unedited photo collection (which is different from my other, rather large edited but not published photo collection 😜).

Happy Feathered Friday!
