Cooper's Hawk on Strawberry Lane

Photos by BarrytheBirder

Accipiter cooperii
I was out looking for Snowy Owls today in the Holland Marsh but had no luck.   Snowies have been reported there, by a couple of online spotters, since December 10th.   I did however see the immature Cooper's Hawk pictured above, on Strawberry Lane.   The top photo better shows the immature's whitish underparts with fine streaks on its breast.   It is quite smart-looking for an immature bird.   Snowy Owls tomorrow, maybe. 
Please comment if you wish.
