Wintertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey. Day 2 of the 2021 Great Backyard Bird Count.
Several times during the morning bird count the small birds all flew away from the birdfeeder. Finally, I noticed a Cooper’s Hawk perched on a tree in the backyard. Soon thereafter a murder of American Crows started harassing the Cooper’s Hawk. The hawk finally flew away allowing the small birds to return to the birdfeeder.
