Early this morning I was standing at our second floor window looking
down at all the birds just below at our feeders when a hawk streaked low
across our side yard, continued behind the box-elder and then swirled
back around & up chasing a small bird (junco?). The bird escaped and the
Coopers Hawk perched disgruntled at my eye-level for quite a while,
shaking its tail repeatedly and shaking out all its rumpled feathers.
All the other birds had fled, but one small bird(?) had enough courage
to streak for shelter in the adjacent cedar even while the hawk was
distracted above. The hawk finally flew off and away.
