This is an immature Cooper's Hawk well taken from a frontal POV with very nice sharpness and natural colours. The composition and Bg add to the appeal of this image.
TFS this excellent shot,

I think you got right, a juvenile male Cooper's Hawk.
Great sharpness, details, natural colours and set in a very good composition. Nice OOF BG. A beauty in a very fine pose!

This is a brilliant capture of the Cooper's Hawk in a lovely pose!
I like the head in profile and the sharp focus on the eye. Great view of the sharp claws too! Excellent sharpness, beautiful light and natural colours. It stands out very nicely against the contrasting background. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Very well captured with good detail JC.Exposure is good to show detail. Pin sharp image. The bird stands out well from the background. Would have liked a more natural perch but we cannot always have it our way.
Well done and TFS

long time no see :-)
this is a very good picture, I doubt it could be any better with a small compact digi.
It's very sharp with a pleasant DOF. Very nice natural colours because of right exposure and White Balance.
The picture is also well composed with lots of space in front of the beautiful bird.
Great work, mf.
Regards from a cold and snowy Sweden.

That is a beautiful closed up.Everything is beautiful ,the pose the sharpness and colors.Also amasing detail.
Great shot of this Coopers Hawk who seems to be looking for some of your Quail. I'll bet nobody showed up while he was hanging around your patio. The detail is excellent and the colors and exposure is right on the money. Well done!!
Years ago I used to raise Roller Pigeons, and this little guy is the reason I quit. The Coopers Hawks would come down and pick them off as soon as I let them out to fly.

Beautifully sharp and well composed image of the hawk Jane. My wife and I all always counting hawk sightings wherever we go. We usually see at least one and as many as 20 (or a bit more) in an hour's drive. We have been doing this for years. :)

another lovely view of a hawk in good details. The feathers on its breast is so well seen in pleasant smoothness.
The smooth background make this composition an effective one. The claws that grabbed to the wall is so exciting to look.
The pose is special too with a slight turn.
