Cooper's Hawk - one of my own personal animal guides. This woodland hawk knows how to dodge obstacles and uses them to conceal his attacks on smaller birds (has been known to use fences to conceal his presence in flight).
Owls - the wide-eyed staring hooters are out there in the dark watching you, watching for tasty rodents, watching everything. They are really distinct from other birds with their large forward-facing eyes.
Cooper's Hawk We saw fella this morning sitting on the backyard bench. If it wasn't a Cooper's Hawk, it was a Broad Winged Hawk. a sunny, frigid, blustery morning) It was there along with some American crows.
