Things seemed awfully quiet at the feeder in front of my townhouse the other day except for a couple vultures seen overhead and the occasional crow squawking. I was working from home so it was an interesting opportunity to see what happens at my feeder when the neighborhood is quiet around midday. To my surprise, when I looked out my kitchen window towards the feeder I saw this bird much larger than the typical Tufted Titmouse, or the Carolina Chicadees or multiple sparrows often seen. This immature Cooper’s Hawk had perched itself in the tree right next to the seed tube looking for lunch.
