The Cooper’s Hawk

The ability to fly and reach the skies.

This morning sitting at my desk working away, I turned around and saw something out of the corner of my eye. I turned around for a better look to see what it was and there he sat! A Cooper’s hawk just outside my window. I very slowly turned a little more and reached for my camera that was sitting on the credenza behind me. I was able to get 3 clicks before he flew off. I quickly ran around the building looking out each door to see where he might have gone and there he was in the big tree in the front parking lot. Very carefully, I walked as close as I could to get in more clicks before he flew off again. It was certainly a great way to start the day!

Below the photos you’ll find more information about the Cooper’s Hawk. Enjoy!

(Info gathered from
The hawk spirit animal or totem has several attributes and meanings:

  • Hawk is the messenger of the spirit world
  • Use the power of focus
  • Take the lead when the time is right
  • Power to see, clear vision
  • Strong connection with spirit, increased spiritual awareness

The hawk can soar high and reach the heavens effortlessly. As most bird totems, this power animal is often considered as a messenger who brings messages from the spirit world and the unseen.

Hawk spirit animals invite us to be focused in our daily undertakings. When you feel the presence of the hawk totem, avoid distractions and focus on the task at hand.

At the same time, hawks can soar and fly high in the sky. This animal has the power to provide support in gaining a higher level perspective on any issue or project you undertake. When the hawk appears in your life, it’s perhaps time to be less distracted by the details and focus on the higher perspective. Relying on the hawk power, you can see what’s ahead clearly and defy any obstacles that may be on your way.

The hawk is also a bird of prey. Having this animal as a spirit guide emphasizes your ability to lead and influence others. When the hawk is present in your life, it could signify that it’s time to take more initiative and being active.

Hawks symbolize the power of observation. This spirit animal’s guidance may also indicate that you have the opportunity to study a situation before taking action. Observe the situation and then act when the time is right.

    Have a Coopers Hawk flying around my house ‘singing’ for the past month. He likes the woods in my back yard and has a favorite branch he sits on. Enjoy his company! Thank you Lord sending this creature here to say… “Look up! Jesus coming!!”
