Cooper’s Hawk

I was headed to the Celery Bog the other day and my BSP started going crazy! I had visions of piercing eyes, huge claws and a face made for ripping flesh. My BSP is never wrong so I knew all I had to do was show up and collect me some owl photos. Is it a Great Horned Owl or a Long-eared Owl? We’ll just have to wait and see. You might think bird sensory perception takes the fun out of birding and for some it might, but not me. I took about ten steps into the woods upon my arrival and there he was, just as I had envisioned– a Cooper’s Hawk! I knew it, BSP never fails!
