Cooper’s Hawk looking for lunch

The garden was visited briefly this morning by the neighbourhood Cooper’s hawk, undoubtedly on the lookout for a meal at our feeders. He stayed just long enough to get a couple of photographs and then departed, still hungry.

European Starling

I took this photograph a year ago this day and had forgotten about it. I know Starlings are unpopular in some quarters as alien interlopers not native to this continent but they are incontrovertibly very handsome, especially at this time of the year when they have a brand new suit of feathery clothes to wear. I like the way he is looking at the camera … “Who do you think you’re looking at, mate?”
