Cooper Hawk Returns. You wonder why the birds fly off and it gets real calm around your bird feeders. Usually they know when there is danger. As I looked outside the back window I seen the cooper hawk retuned and was sitting on top of the feeder thinking that a bird may just decide to join him. He fell short of his goals at least here today.
Hawk tries to attack birds in evergreen shrub. Noticed our bird feeder got real calm so I took a look out back and seen the hawk above in the tree. By the time I got the video camera he had moved down to the fence where he was watching some birds hiding in the evergreen shrubs. He made one pass into the tree but didn’t have success. We are beginning to see more of these around our neighborhood. Hunting around a active bird feeder is like going to a local buffet.
