This week’s photo, taken August 24, 2015 from the pier in Edmonds, WA, features a juvenile COOPER’S HAWK.
I enjoy standing on the Edmonds pier looking for seabirds because I believe that just about anything can show up, including non-seabirds. Several weeks ago, a COOPER’S HAWK appeared out of nowhere and made one quick pass by the pier. Although I was quite surprised to see the young hawk, the two ROCK PIGEONS that usually hang out on the pier were probably even more surprised, but they didn’t stick around long enough to tell me how they really felt.
