Coopers Hawk in my backyard!

This hawk likes to hang out in my backyard and misbehave. He can sure empty a yard when he shows up. A couple of days ago I saw him sweep down and hit a squirrel. The squirrel not only got away but chased the hawk off. Yay squrriel!

Date March 2011
Location: My backyard in Harlingen, Texas
Behavior: Sits on back fence watching over the yard. Sometimes sit on telephone pole in alley and makes calls for up to an hour at a time. Has been seen bathing and drinking from the watering station in the back of our yard.
