Angry and Agitated About Accipiters!

Bob the Coop says "WHAT!!"

I am unable to be kept accountable for the inaccurate accounts of the avifauna we call Accipiters as my ability to accidentally identify them is abysmal. I have now accomplished my alliteration assault and shall not assail you any, aaahhhh, more. Ack.

Coop?

Coop again?

Oh, great. Spread your stoopid wings and hide your tail.
Like it's not hard enough already to figure you out!

This is my first Accipiter shot from 2004...Coop or no?

This was the first of our semi-annual Cooper's Hawk
Thanksgiving Dinners!


This is also in our front garden.
He was late for Thanksgiving, but he showed up for Christmas.
He's looking for his gift...

This was Christmas Day 2009.
He was so polite to wait at the French Cafe in our back garden for his meal.


Amazing, this is the day after Christmas last year!
Everyone should have a Holiday Hawk!

My favorite Sharp-tailed from a few posts ago.
Once again keeping the inventory in control at the feeders!


One more European Starling down the hatch!
We saw this guy in a heavy rain while visiting a friend in Chicago.


Even he's angry about his identity!

This is the no longer hungry Sharpie from a few weeks ago.
All of the birdies can relax and go about their business now...


It's not that I like this photo, I just didn't realize I added it twice and I'm too lazy to delete it.
I could have just left it here without saying anything to give you something to comment on, but I thought it would be more interesting to leave it in and make a comment on my own about the fact that this is here twice and on top of that it's a little fuzzy, do to the fact that it was kind of far away and I can be quite the crappy photographer when I feel the mood strike, speaking of striking, I sure am glad this guy didn't strike me, it could have scratched my lens not to mention damaging my hat or the little hair that is still clinging on for dear life on top of my tete.
Okay, I'm done...for now.

Yeah, done...

Oops. Did I do it again? Gosh, can you believe that I would do that twice in a single post? It's like I have nothing else to post today so I'm filling up space with my rambling nonsense about these wacky Accipiters and how their identities make me angry and agitated.
Oh, there I go again. I'm sorry. I'll stop now. Really, I will. Okay, now. Or now. How about NOW.


Boy, I can get some real doosies, huh?
