Alerted by the telltale “squeeee!” of an angry mockingbird (you can hear in the clip) in the backyard, I scanned the boughs in vicinity and found one of our neighborhood Cooper’s hawks dining rather vigorously in a nearby tree.

(As usual, this video was shot with my patented shaky cam technique of holding my Canon point-and-shoot up against the eyepiece of my 20x – 60x spotting scope set to about 30X).
