It was a nice, mildly overcast morning for January and I was getting some decent shots off my back deck when this fellow/gal showed up and rained on my parade. Needless to say every other bird in the neighborhood disappeared. He was close enough that even in portrait mode I had to merge two images to get a full body shot. My guess is a Cooper's Hawk but I'm not sure of the difference between a Sharp-shinned Hawk. All shot with a 400mmf3.5/D300 combo.
