This Cooper's Hawk has been a frequent visitor to our backyard in Mississauga, Ontario this past winter.


Obviously he is very hungry as he has returned many times to watch the Mourning Doves and other small birds feeding on the ground beneath our feeders.

He often gets lucky and gets a Mourning Dove as they are slower than the other smaller birds.

I live in the Meadowvale region of Mississauga and we have a little Cooper's Hawk that comes around our place, too. I love seeing him in the trees or on the light post. Not sure the Mourning Doves would agree with me, though! :)
