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