Cooper's Hawk Meets Cooper Mini--An Improbable Union

The Cooper's Hawk is the largest and least common of the two species of Accipiter--bird-eating hawks--found commonly in the eastern United States, the other being the Sharp-shinned. The Cooper Mini is a small car manufactured in England and now being imported into the United States in small numbers. A colleague who lives in northern Virginia who has the rare distinction of having a pair of Cooper's Hawks nesting in her backyard, and also just recently purchased a Cooper Mini. Upon waking one recent weekend morning, she discovered one member of the Cooper's Hawk pair perched on the hood of her Cooper Mini. What an incredible cooincidence!
