Hawk about town

South End hawk

You really have to be careful in South End alleys these days - at least if you're no larger than a squirrel or mouse. John McLachlan reports this young Cooper's hawk keeps visiting the alley out back of his South End home.

Love the po'd jays, too. They will provide much entertainment.

A similar looking hawk has been appearing in my JP yard this Winter. I have never seen a hawk with this coloring before. It’s not a red-tailed hawk, which is
often seen in the Arbs. Thanks for identifying it.

that I've been expecting a Malthusian crash for a while now.

But for the coyotes it's "free lunch".
