Damp Raptor - Coopers Hawk

I believe that this is a Coopers Hawk.

Here it is resting on the railing of our deck after hunting small birds in our back yard at our feeder.

It remained there in the rain looking around at the bushes for about 10 minutes.

I managed to take several good pictures with a 70-300 mm lens on a Canon full frame camera.

Thank you for sending us your report and picture, I'm sure our readers will enjoy!

I will also post this on our facebook page.
