Blustery Day

I took these, yesterday.  We're having a lot of rain, 5 inches just yesterday, and the wind has been fierce.

I walked into the kitchen, and spotted this guy on the back fence.  I grabbed my camera, but didn't move closer, I was afraid he'd fly off, if he saw me move.

Not the best quality, taken with the zoom, thru the patio door, but I thought I'd share them anyway.

I loved seeing his feathers tousled by the wind.  After the last shot, he was gone.

It's still raining, today, and more is predicted for tomorrow.  We need the rain, but.....
Go take more photos,


  1. What kind of bird is this? This was a happy accident for you to capture these.

  2. I'm pretty sure he's a Cooper's Hawk.
