Default Hawk vs cat

Due to health and weather I've had my cameras setup in my yard and caught a Cooper's hawk taking a shot at a feral cat. Wish he would have gotten the cat. It's hard to see but the cat squatted down behind the wall.

Neat catch on the trail cam!

A cat would be a struggle for a Coopers unless he got the neck/head on the initial stoop. Even then he might regret it.

The Coopers and Sharpies around here are regulars at bird feeders plus the occasional snake. I wonder if the cat was encroaching on the hawk's bird supply.

I've watched my falconer/brother hunt jack rabbits with a big redtail hawk and that is a rodeo once they get a grip on the jack especially if they miss the neck and head.
And the redtail is probably twice the size of a Coopers.

Nice vid! Cats have nine lives, so eight more tries for the bird.
