I love living where the city meets the country. We get lots of wildlife in our yard, some more welcome than others (Bambi quit eating my tulips!).
This is either a Sharp-shinned Hawk or a Coopers Hawk. Apparently the defining characteristic is the shape of it's tail and this beauty wasn't going to show me it's tail feathers. And I wasn't going to approach it to look closer. I've seen the movie The Birds, I'm not dumb.
