Coopers Hawks Drying Out

One of the Coopers Hawks that keep the rodents under control around here landed atop a pine tree and spread its wings to dry out:

Shortly thereafter, the second hawk arrived and the pair shared some Quality Body Maintenance time:

The first image comes from the Sony DSC-H5 with the 1.7 tele adapter. The second is from the Canon DX230HS with the digital zoom set to 2x “digital tele adapter mode” and the optical zoom cranked all the way out; they’re both small crops from larger images. Not much to choose between the two, although the Canon wins hands-down for convenience.
