Thank You very much everyone, much appreciated!
Captain, Bee, Peter, Cheffievrs, Thank You for looking in and your comments especially, much appreciated. Thanks much!
Ian, I was quite surprised, all of the little guys, the whole neighborhood was dead quiet which usually means the Coopers were up in a tree, I actually had two Coops come in on a late day hunt not long ago, I have never seen two come in at the same time, they both missed again though. I looked up in the Walnut tree and did a double look when I saw the size and those big eyes, very cool.
Al, I thought that they were fairly common, at least in the early or late hours, The local Bird list-Serve has a weekly walk through the largest fresh water marsh on the Eastern Seaboard, almost every week they tell of one of these in the same tree or there about each week. The Backyard here now, thats another matter, first in over 20 years. I did see him for a brief moment today. Good news I think, hope to catch Him or Her in better light.
Sandy, Thank You most kindly, you are right, late in the day, pointing right at the setting Sun, made for a bit of pp work, tough light it was for sure, I was pleasantly surprised to see this beauty sitting looking down at me. Thanks again!
