Jan 10, 2013: Cooper's Hawk

Cooper's Hawk. 1/10/13 (Wolf Oesterreich)

Watch for Cooper's Hawks visiting your backyards. This one is an immature. An adult visited later in the day. Cooper's Hawks prey on song birds and small mammals. Their cousin, the Sharp-shinned Hawk is smaller (although a female Sharpie may overlap with a male Cooper's). Cooper's have a rounded tail while the Sharpie has a squared tail.
