Project 365/282 – Still Looking

The Fall bird migration season is still on. The last couple of days I’ve been trying to squeeze in some birding.  In spite of my efforts, the birds have been a little elusive.

Challenged, I continue to search in hopes of finding something darling.  There were a few surprise visitors at the Manor, along with the usual suspects.

Finally getting back to Kinder Farm Park, which has been rather birdy lately, Iset up in one of my favorite spots. I began checking through the birds around me and enjoying the little cuties.

And then, WHOOSH !! All of the birds in synchronicity scattered. What in the world caused that?

In SWOOPS a Cooper’s Hawk. With his evil and intense ever-seeing eyes. No wonder all the birds left!

Coopers Hawk

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

  1. The smaller birds and the squirrel are cute and pretty, but that hawk is impressive. I really like the birds of prey and have never been able to see a Coopers Hawk that closely.

  2. I’m glad you managed to get a shot of the hawk in the trees. I bet it wasn’t easy to capture. We’re off on the road again tomorrow for 2 weeks to the Loire Valley and Brittany, so I might not be on line for a few days. Continue enjoying the autumn and I look forward to seeing your pictures whenever I’m back on line.
