Hawk in the Backyard

A Hawk in the trees of my backyard

Today was a relatively nice, warm day here in Connecticut, so I spend some time out on the deck relaxing.  I decided to take my Canon 7D with the 400 mm lens, just in case I saw any birds in the trees of the backyard.  After about 15 minutes, this guy (or gal) landed in the trees and I was able to snap off a few shots before he/she headed out.  I’m not exactly sure which species this is, but it was relatively small and was flying through the trees very easily, so I’m guessing it’s one of the “Accipiters”, maybe a Cooper’s Hawk or a Northern Harrier.  I’ll continue to look though my guide books and if I decide for sure, I’ll post here.  If anyone knows the species, drop me a line through the contact page.
