Young Cooper’s Hawk

A young Cooper’s hawk has been terrorizing the backyard. It’s been getting colder and the try and use the bird feeder to grab a quick meal. Some little birds were on high alert. I snapped a picture of a quail and red finch hiding in bushes from hawk up above. I got a picture of the nictitating membrane passing over the hawks eye in the first two pictures. Lucky timing on my part.
