Look Ma - No Hands!

Waiting For Lunch

As I came home this afternoon, I was being watched. Sitting on a stone wall under our deck was this fine bird, giving me the eye.He didn’t move at all as I drove in, so I went upstairs and got my camera and was pleasantly surprised that he was still there when I returned. I got a couple of pictures before he finally flew off, then I found out why he’d stayed put.

Waiting For Lunch

He’d been sitting about two feet from the downspout, and after he flew away a chipmunk scurried out of the downspout and off to other cover. My fine feathered friend wasn’t posing, he was waiting for his lunch to be served.

[edit] JenW, over at the Digital Grin photography form, identifies him as a Cooper’s Hawk.
