    I was driving home after dropping my kids at school this morning. It was raining hard (unusual here in the Arizona desert) and I looked up at the light pole in my development and saw this guy. My camera was on the seat next to me (100-300mm f/4 + 1.4x TC), but it was quite cloudy and dark, so these are at high ISO. I'm pretty sure he's a Coopers Hawk, but please correct me if I'm wrong. He's the first one I've seen in the neighborhood.

    And then he flew away pretty quickly:

    Good eye to spot this guy, and you got good detail in that first one.
