the sparrows, chickadees and a few cute little warblers were having a lovely time eating and drinking in the garden… I was particularly happy as the warblers hadn’t been around for a while…

suddenly they all flew into the trees and a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk landed on the wires over the deck… what a surprise…

the last few sparrows flew right over my head to get to the safety of the cedars…

the hawk watched from the wires and wandered along the top of the deck for about ten minutes before leaving…

it was very quiet for a while…

it was special to see as I’ve only seen hawks twice in the garden, but I hope it doesn’t come back as it really keeps all the other birds away, lol…
