Juvenile Cooper's Hawk with Prey
Photographer: Wendi Schneider
Location: Denver, CO
Story: 
One of three juveniles in our neighborhood this year. I spend a lot of time watching them. I saw one of them atop a light post eating and another swoop in. I am not sure if this is the one who was eating or if this one stole the meal, as it took me a few crucial seconds to find the hawk in the lens.
