Gray Catbird Narrowly Escapes Coopers Hawk

The Gray Catbird is not often observed in the Colvin Run Habitat. This catbird arrived the other morning and perched in the dogwood tree.
Like most other birds, from the dogwood the catbird flew to the feeder pole.
Within just a few seconds, the catbird dove back into the dogwood to narrowly escape an attack from a Coopers hawk that had suddenly appeared. Please accept my apologies for enjoy the moment and not getting a photo of the hawk.
