Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii)

This is a Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) that was photographed in my front yard on May 11, 2008. He was high up in my Eucalyptus Tree. She is nesting a few houses down in a Mesquite tree and frequently hunts for birds at my feeders. She has been calling a lot as well. They are common here especially in winter, but this is the first time I am aware of any nesting in my neighborhood.
