Snowbird of a Different Sort
"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 !
