Thanks very much, folks. Not long ago, I posted an image of this Cooper's hawk (yes, it IS a Cooper's!) with his feathers all askew by the wind. The title of the thread was, "Against the Wind" I showed a print to a friend of mine and he said, "Yup, looks just like ol' burned-out Bob." (as in Bob Seger )

I'm really glad I asked now, I'd never have worked that out on my own.

Thanks, Dave. I wouldn't mind seeing him again. I still listen to the old stuff and enjoy his.
