Three Crows, regulars at my feeding station, are resting quietly on their usual 
perches in an ash tree. They’re about 30 feet up, and the scene looks just like 
any other winter day, except that an adult Cooper’s Hawk is perched about ten 
feet below them. Been there for 15 minutes!

The Crows are not making a fuss, and it almost looks like the Coop is 
“pretending” to be one of them, using them as cover while waiting for small 
birds to return to the sunflower hopper just below.

A fourth Crow has flown in, and one of the others dropped down toward the 
ground feeding area, as if to grab a morsel, but thought better of it, I guess.
