All the hiking I do to find hawks, I have this Coopers Hawk land in my neighbors back yard. How quickly all the other birds take off when the hawk is around.

Cool captures! All the other birds are no fools then!

I love the pose and bokeh in the second shot and the expression of the bird in the third!

I really like #2. The green background and light grey fence make a nice background. I suspect the birds fly away due to this: Isolate The Most Powerful Moment Photofocus (http://photofocus.com/2010/09/07/isolate-the-most-powerful-moment/) (not for the squeamish)

Nice set. #2 for me as well ...

I like #3, as well. Sort of a "Wanna make something of it?" stance.

In photo#3, the hawk was looking onto the ground at a squirrel.

Ok, then. A dead squirrel is a good squirrel especially if it's bird food!

Nice shot...not a very old one due to the yellow eye. It sure is a beauty though and lovely to have hanging around. :)
