So I get home a little early from work, and I'm fussing around the kitchen when my wife starts screaming, "OH WOW! WOW! WOW!!!"
And, this is what she was seeing, although my capture of the moment is thanks to a lot of photo retouching...
Mind you, this is through a crud-covered screen and a window that's taken several long days of rain -- but that's a Cooper's Hawk with a rock dove in its talons. She saw the whole incident in living color. I was doing my best to capture the moment on digital film, with only moderate success.
Still. Pretty cool.
We filled out our GBBC form with several birds, including (1) Cooper's Hawk, and (1) rock dove [deceased].
