It was overcast and pretty dark on the 31st when we saw our first Eastern Phoebe of the year. On April 1, we got out as it started to rain, but not before getting some good pictures of the Cooper’s Hawk that was overlooking the South-West corner of the hedge.

This is an adult Cooper’s Hawk. The Cooper’s Hawk we saw on March 20th was an immature one. April 1.
Cooper's Hawk
The hawk stayed in the tree, about 3/4 the way up, until is started sprinkling. It then seemed to notice something with great interest and flew off north into the hedge. April 1.
