An immature hawk landed unexpectedly in my garden yesterday. It was first on a small brush pile then flew to this fallen tree which is only about six feet off the ground. It looked around, flew to the ground then flew away. I was only able to get a couple of quick shots through my window before he was gone. Anyone know what kind of hawk this is?

Update: This hawk has been identified as a Cooper's Hawk.

In this flock of Bushtits on the suet feeder you can see the difference between the dark eyed males and light eyed females.

When the Bushtits came, everyone else stepped aside and let them eat their fill. Luckily they were very fast.

That snowy morning found a Yellow-rumped Warbler on the suet feeder. She stayed with a flock of Juncos that are regulars in my yard. In the summer she will become more brightly colored.
