This afternoon, I saw a new bird at the feeder! It was a bird of prey, and John and I have decided it was probably a Cooper's Hawk. I was able to get 3 very fuzzy pictures of it from the kitchen window. (I'm going to ask John to take the screen out, so any future pictures of birds will be a little better.) The Cooper's Hawk is nicknamed "chicken hawk" as the females can decapitate other birds as large as chickens. It's a good thing there were no chickens in our back yard. There are quite a few song birds, and it looked as if the hawk had his eye on something as it was perched on the arm of the feeder.

These are the best of the 3 pictures.
