Close up of a hawk

Temperatures in the 50's and the sounds of birds migrating over head drew me outside today with my camera. I found this hawk hiding in some brush behind my house. He let me get quite close to him before he took off after some doves.

Those are fantastic photos. What kind of hawk is it? We have a Cooper's Hawk visit our backyard.

Lisa .. you have taken extraordinary pictures of this hawk .. you should "stamp" them with a watermark or something so they stay "yours"
They are beautiful !!

Those are gorgeous shots of a beautiful bird. Although I kind of hope the doves got away!

I think it was a Cooper's as well. The doves did luckily get away:)

Might be a Cooper's, but could be a Sharp-Shinned Hawk or possibly even a Merlin as well...

Those are amazing shots. It may well be a Cooper's, but it could also be a Sharp-shinned Hawk, or even possibly a Merlin...
