Raptors in the Hood

My sister took these great pictures of a young Cooper's Hawk in her backyard!  You can tell he's immature by his yellow eyes and the streaking on his breast.  Notice how his feathers are all fluffed up?  It's been very cold here, only 19 degrees this morning when I woke up.  He's gorgeous, isn't he?





I'm without a camera right now but had to post these for all of you.  I hope to get a new camera after tax season, but unfortunately Uncle Sam comes first.  


Finished my home made ornaments today.  I'll have some photos after Christmas.  I think they turned out great.  Happy holidays, everyone!

Hi Genny! Hawks are pretty, but my chickens and guineas are afraid of them. I'm always concerned they'll kill the guineas, but so far so good. We've been watching red foxes around the house recently. So far they haven't attempted to hurt the guineas, at least not that we know of. Your ornaments sound neat- what did you make them from? Merry Christmas!
