Cooper’s Hawk and Flicker

A couple of days ago while walking the dog I stopped in an open area of Como Park to take a picture of a Flicker that was on the ground. As I was photographing, the bird rolled on its side and before I could think of a reason for such odd behavior, my viewfinder was filled with the explosion of a life and death struggle.  I now realize the Flicker was trying to make itself small so as to be less of a target for what followed – its demise from a strike of the talons of a Cooper’s Hawk.
