Despite the chilly 15-degree temperature Monday morning, this Cooper’s hawk decided to catch some feel-good sunny rays from a perch near the intersection of Liberty and Hardin streets. Once thought averse to towns and cities, Cooper’s hawks are now fairly common in leafy subdivisions, the Cornell Lab’s All About Birds website reported. Cooper’s hawks sometimes can be “unwanted guests at bird feeders, looking for an easy meal (but not one of the sunflower seeds).” (Photo by Lou Wilin)
