For four years now around late February, I’ve been waiting for this same Cooper’s Hawk to return to her nesting territory. Usually the male is present before she which held true this year. I was thrilled to see her this weekend sitting a close distance to last years nest. With a wild specimen you can wait for months not knowing if nature will take a different course this time or if the unfortunate has happened. It’s hard to put into words. I want so badly for the individuals that I observe to succeed year after year and when one returns I practically feel a sense of relief. Photographically telling the stories of these wild individuals gives me purpose and I’ll appreciate every moment I get to spend observing and learning from them. It was a pleasure to run into the @ucornithologyclub along the trail and get to share a moment observing her all together. #coopershawk#accipitercooperii#elite_raptors#cincyparks#canonwildlife#birds_illife#bird_brilliance#feather_perfection#planetbirds#birds_captures#birdsofprey#wildohio#bns_nature#bestbirdshots - 6 minutes ago
In the zone. The hunt viewed from the grasshopper’s perspective. A seemingly innocent songbird, this sparrow definitely can act like a top notch predator. 🌿

Another rare sunny day photo that ended up working out. It’s currently snowing and all I want to do is be outside with these cranes instead of being stuck in the office. Why does it always seem to start snowing on a Monday when I can only go out in the weekends? It still hasn’t snowed once this season on a weekend... - 17 minutes ago
