What a Beauty

I had been seeing a large bird out my window at night, or at least I thought that is what I was seeing.
Look at that beak....I'm guessing he would like my smallest dog for a snack.
I don't know birds, if anyone does, help me...I just know I think he is puurrrrrty.
He was just perched up on my bird house, he would have never fit in the holes, 
he would have needed the entire house.

Thanks for visiting my feathered part of the country,

  2. i'm guessing a juvenile cooper's hawk, perhaps. just lovely!

    1. Thanks for helping me figure this guy out. I do not know birds, so I appreciate help on what he is.

  3. A hawk no doubt, (going by the beak) but oh MY - what a magnificent fellow. Oooh how great it would have been if he'd showed off and had a little stretch and spread those wings! :)

  4. Fabulous shots of this handsome fellow! I checked my birdbook. I agree: I think it's a juvenile Cooper's Hawk too.

  5. I am also thinking it is a hawk. What a BEAUTIFUL bird!

  6. Wonderful close up. Wonderfully handsome raptor...;)
