Silent sentry

This Cooper's Hawk flew across the yard and took up sentry on a fence post in the back yard this morning.  I don't think he had the best of intentions.  I am sure he was attracted by the large number of sparrows that have been coming around the bird feeder. This morning, he was out of luck -- they had finished off the bird seed the night before.  The sparrows, that beautiful blue jay and that handsome pair of cardinals that always come around were searching for food elsewhere.  
The drama continues.
