[CT Birds] Cooper's

In my morning routine of getting the feeders and bird bath all set I
noticed everything was REAL quiet, so I figured "my" Cooper's Hawk was
around.  No sooner did I get inside than WOOSH!, there he was, right there
on the deck, sitting atop the hook that holds one of my feeders.  There was
a Downy inside my big suet feeder still as could be.  It was a stand-off
and finally the Cooper's flew off.  However, the birds weren't back to the
feeder for another 20 minutes so I assume it took awhile for him to finally
leave the scene.  This had happened previously this year with a Downy
perched just below the Coop on one of the deck spindles, still as could
be.  Again the Cooper's flew off and the Downy made it through another day.
