PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/03/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.
Notes: Even when I am not out shooting photographs, I find myself very aware of my surroundings. Especially when it comes to sound. Birds have a language all their own. They have a repertoire songs for attracting mates and claiming territory; chip notes for location and presence; plus alarm calls for various intruders. I often hear the overzealous calls of the local Blue Jays in the backyard, alerting the surrounding wildlife of a hawk, snake, feral cat , or other such danger. But as I listened to the Jays that day, there was much less vigor to their effort than seemed typical. I hardly got up and searched, but soon the Titmouse and Chickadees joined in the fuss. Maybe it was worth a look? After a few minutes of searching, I discovered that the cause of the distraction was much closer than expected. Returning to the house, I grabbed my gear and guessed at an exposure setting, then circumvented the property. I extended the tripod legs and stood behind the hedge row. This young Accipiter was so distracted by the gang mobbing, it allowed me to move to a more favorable vantage point. I finally found a small window between the thick canopy of the River Birch tree and photographed this beauty to my hearts delight. Finally, when a Hummingbird started to buzz around the nearby branches, the Cooper’s Hawk decided it had better look for a meal elsewhere.
