What We Found In The Woods

I saw the familiar sleek shape in an unexpected place and was still formulating my thoughts on it when one said "It's a hawk!" and the other said "A Cooper's Hawk!" It was about half this distance from us, eating some dead thing on the leaf-litter carpeted ground, but by the time I got the camera on, it had flown to this perch a few yards farther away. We watched until it lost its abiltiy to tolerate our intrusion and flew off.

And how proud I was that my Boy Scout sons knew what it was so quickly and so specifically! I love my nature boys!
