You put up feeders to feed birds.  The Coopers, or Sharpies like we get, need to eat too.  We have a nest in the neighborhood.  Don't mind letting them take some, as that is what they do.  Pretty sure they pick off the sick Siskins, which does keep the disease level down.

Subject: [Tweeters] List and Advice Please

Well, I started my list of first birds off with a Downy woodpecker, followed by pine siskin, dark-eyed junco, Anna's hummingbird, Townsend's warbler, chestnut-backed chickadee and then, #7: Cooper's hawk which grabbed what may have been my # 7 bird, which has put paid to my list just now. (Oops, he is back again!)

Here is where I need advice.  What should I do about this? Take down the feeders? He has several nice spots to lie in what for birds at the feeders. (I realize he has to eat just like the other birds but, but I feel like I am now his accomplice.)
