As I glanced out the window one fine morning…
There was a zoom here and a zoom there and a Cooper’s Hawk on patrol took a fairly longish break, for a Cooper’s Hawk, on a fire escape, to watch the local Starlings and Rock Doves and Sparrows recover from their fright.
Not a bad shot of the tail here, considering the distance. Note the lack of white borders at the dark bands; a young Goshawk would have those.
I hope you’ve been paying attention to the Gavin Grimm story. He’s a profile in courage we can all use.
