Summary[edit]

Description

Imagine you are a young Cooper's Hawk and you see a delicious Wood Duck just setting there, not moving, and not alerted to the danger of the Hawk. Then you head for the duck with the object of having it for a meal.

The only problem with this scenario is the Wood Duck is a stuffed specimen on the other side of a window.

The Cooper's Hawk rounded the corner of the building and headed for the duck. It crashed into the window and fell to the ground.

I just happened to be looking in its direction when this happened. The Hawk was stunned, but was able to fly off in less than about 2 minutes, just time enough for me to get this picture.
