With snow predicted today, we saw our first-of-the-season 'snow bird' in the yard about 2:30 PM - a female Dark-eyed Junco.
At about 1 PM we spotted a juvenile Cooper's Hawk in the backyard tree. It looked about for prey and finally dove down into our yard. Moments later it flew up to our back porch with nothing. It saw us at the window not 10 feet away and flew off.
