Predators in the yard...

This morning while checking my e-mail, I caught something out of the corner of my eye. The upside down suet feeder was just a swingin'. It moves a bit when a woodpecker lands on top and 'walks' himself under it, but this was a big arc. So, I stood up and looked outside and in the crabapple tree right outside my craft room window was the most gorgeous Cooper's Hawk. I have seen him in a tree across the street from our house but never in our yard. The hawk was obviously after something that was on the suet feeder, but he missed. Before I could get my camera, he was off to another hunting area. How glorious to see one of the predator birds up close and personal. I'm tempted to put up a big sign that says "Eat House Sparrows". The reason for that is for another post.
