Chicken Hawk

The Cooper's hawk that regularly visits my backyard disappoints me. His fierce appearance is a sham. Squirrels- my sworn enemies- know that they can fearlessly taunt the predator. It only eats other birds. The magnificent red-tailed hawk pictured here, on the other hand, is a rodent killer. I told it that the hunting is good over in my neighborhood, but the hawk seemed fat and happy in its Loose Park home.
