Having Some Fun

Having Some Fun

I was checking on the birding activity in the desert behind our place when a large juvenile Cooper's Hawk landed in front of me and started to chase a lizard under a small bush.
This was surprising behavior as I had never seen a Cooper's Hawk do this before plus the hawk did not seem to mind that I was in the area. Maybe it was just having some fun.
