Coopers Hawk

Recommended Posts

Saw a flash by the window so looked out and saw the hawk. It grabbed a bird. Grabbed the camera and snuck the patio door open to try and get a quick shot before it flew off. Fun ! It was just a couple feet from the end of the deck so the flowers helped.

Cool.  I had a turkey vulture in the back yard a couple days ago, working on a squirrel.  I don't know where he got the squirrel, since I just mowed the day before and there weren't any dead squirrels in the area.   It was reasonably fresh by the way.

Sure that isn't a sharp shinned hawk?

Just asking, Always tough to tell the difference, IMO.

Head size, "hooded" head pattern, and barred chest makes me lean to sharp skinned.

Nice pictures! As always.

I was thinking coopers cuz of the size. this was a tall bird when it perched in the alley.took off before more posing. yes indeed they are tough to tell apart. we get both kinds raiding the feeders.
