Thank you!!! I was absolutely stunned when I saw the clarity and the color balance for this shot, not only was this the first time I ever saw Cooper's Hawk, but this is a shot will remember for a very long time!
Hello all, I think this is a Cooper’s hawk. This is my first sighting.
Location: northern illinois
Habitat: suburban area, neat meadows and open spaces, but I am uncertain of the exact local flora.
