Whoa, great shots, Jo! I've never seen one stop in our trees, but they often fly over the woods behind us. :-)
I tried to get a pic of a hawk in a tree on our place but I was using my phone and you could not see the hawk. The Linky Follow hop has turned out quite a crowd. I am now your newest Linky Follower.
I found you through the new linky follower blog hop and am happy to be your newest follower. It'd be great if you came by to follow me back. :)Karah thespacebetweenblog.wordpress.com
SURE... this is a really late comment, BUT, this Cooper's Hawk, an Accipiter, is just the bird you will see in town. Why? Because all of the bird feeders are feeding the little birds upon which it feeds. Yumm yum. Little Brown Birds, or, as the accipiters call them, Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
