Snowbird of a Different Sort‏

Cooper's hawk 2-25-15, Chapel Hill, NC
"Snowbird" usually refers to a person who leaves the north and goes to Florida in winter to avoid the cold weather.  This photo taken recently in my son's yard in Chapel Hill, NC, shows a different type.  This is a Cooper's hawk in deep snow, very unusual for the Piedmont of NC, looking for a tasty snack of a bird coming to the bird feeder.  I am sure it wishes it had migrated south !
