Today’s Photo of the Day is courtesy of this regal Cooper’s Hawk on Center Road. Spotted him on my way home from town yesterday, on the right side of Carpenter Hill, likely looking for dinner in the vineyard that used to be the old Hicks farm.
At least, I’m pretty sure he’s a Cooper’s Hawk because he looks a lot like this photo and the photo I posted here. Not sure about this one – he looks a little different.
Pretty soon, we’ll be spotting Snowy Owls! And shoveling snow at the same time.
Here are a few more pics of today’s feathered friend.
