Cooper’s Hawk

This Cooper’s Hawk has visited my workplace daily for at least two weeks. When one feeds songbirds, one may also feed other birds.

I have unsuccessfully tried for these past two weeks to get a photo of this bird. Yesterday I was finally able to get this image through my office window.

So I did not notice before now that this bird may have a defective right eye. I will study it more closely to learn if that is the case. If it is indeed the case, that means it does not have binocular vision. If so, it is still an effective hunter.
