Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
Today I saw a Cooper's hawk (I believe it was a Cooper's) in the backyard,perched in my crabapple tree, talons full of a fresh killed sparrow and ignoring the grey squirrel below him. I've seen this bird before but never had it sit still for me like today.

Yesterday in Asbury Park in the lake on the south side of town, there was one of the crowned herons mixed in with the gulls, although we could not tell which type.

Can't wait 'til spring!!
