Excitement in the Yard - 07 Oct 2018

Heavy rains the past two days have not discouraged the visiting White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows from visiting the feeders. Despite low light conditions (1/60 sec at ISO 3200) I tried to digiscope the Chipmunks, Mourning Doves, and White-crowned Sparrows from inside the house.

When everything abruptly scattered it was only a fraction of a second before an immature Cooper's Hawk blasted through the yard. It landed in the low shrubs next door and stayed long enough to get a few digiscoped images. Needless to say it would be a quite a long time before the critters would return.
