Urban backyard

Notes:

This is the second day in a row this Cooper's Hawk has visited my yard. Presumably, it is attracted by the birds that gather around my bird feeders.

Thanks. These photos were taken from about 30 feet away. Prior to yesterday, I don't think I have ever seen one in my yard before.
