Bird of Prey

Posted February 6, 2013 By Ruth

I’ve been bad about posting the photos from the trail cameras lately, but to be honest they’ve not been overly interesting.  I put out a feed block in an attempt to attract in the deer and turkeys, and instead distracted the regular birds from my feeders.  This means 100+ photos a week of chickadees and cardinals…..till yesterday when I checked the cameras and found this following set of photos:

The general concensus on the birder forum I posted the pics to is that this is probably a Coopers Hawk, though there was enough question that it MIGHT be a large Sharpshinned.  Made my day though!
