Cooper’s Hawk at Queen Elizabeth Park


Cooper’s Hawk (juvenile/1st year) | Épervier de Cooper | Accipiter cooperii: My son and I were lucky to spot and then get decent photos this Cooper’s Hawk as we were walking around Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Park. Now if only I owned a more powerful lens, I would not have had to crop this photo as much as I did! One day, maybe…

Taken July 23, 2015, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 900, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/500, cropped). Not baited, called in or set up.
