Thank you very much, Mike!

Common Myna from my Hawaii vacation. They are considered invasive pests, but I find them pretty, similar to European starlings in that regard :lol:

Edit, 1-3: I've been informed that this is actually a sharp-shinned hawk, not a Cooper's.

Rainy day, heavy crop. Cooper's hawk visiting my bird laden backyard. He ended up capturing a killdeer. Never seen them get after prey and catch something before.

Couple from me... Haven't been birding much since my dog passed over a year ago... I wasn't that good anyway so my practice abilities plummeted..

Some small sparrows... And a parakeet...
