Cooper’s Hawk.

Fifteen species this chilly (50s (F)!) overcast late morning when dog and I arrived at the trailhead. We waited out the rain this time, and the trails were not too muddy. Quite a few more bird species, including some lessd familiar ones.

Hard to get decent photos in the dim-light conditions, but at the very end of our hike, a hawk soared over.
