Hawk

While I was photographing the Woodpecker in the last post, a hawk flew in up on the mountain.  I’m not great at bird identification, but I think it is a Cooper’s hawk.  It was very far away and raining, so the photos aren’t great.  I watched it sit there for awhile, while nearby crows went crazy making a big fuss about it being around.  It ignored them and preened it’s feathers, even looked at me at time or two.  Then it flew to the ground.  I don’t know what it did, I never saw it fly back up and I waited for as long as I could in the cold.  It didn’t really fly down like they do when they are after something.  So I’m not sure what it was up to.  I have it going to the ground on a video clip.  But it’s not a very good clip because of my shakiness, so I didn’t upload it to the video log.  I can if someone is really interested in it.  But it’s not that great.
