Cooper's hawk in January 2014JIM MAKOSKY, ARCADIA
Jim’s wife alerted him to this Cooper’s hawk on their fence in January 2014. In 2008, Jim won a fellowship from the Lilly Endowment to do a nature study in Hamilton County. The fellowship allowed him to purchase photography equipment, giving him a retirement hobby after teaching at Tipton High School.
