  1. I was taking some nice pictures of songbirds when this beautiful creature scared them all away. I have been wondering if it is a sharp-shinned or a coopers? I took a measuring tape to the spot where he landed on the chain-link fence and I estimate he is around 13-15" from tip to tail. Even though there were birds everywhere he did not catch any. He came face to face with a squirrel and did not attempt to kill it even though the squirrel was frozen like a deer in the headlights, so I think that prey was too big for him. Time of day was 11:30 am in London, Ontario, Canada. Thanks in advance for your help with this ID.
  2. This bird was seen on December 21 of last year at Milavec Reservoir in Colorado (just southeast of Longmont, CO). It struck me as much larger than a Cooper's hawk- making me think/hope for Goshawk, but I am honestly terrible with Accipiters and would love a second opinion. Thank you in advance!
  3. Seen at Oso Flaco, CA on March 9, 2019. Cooper's?
  4. Recently in Southeast Michigan. Not my photos or sighting. Photos by Kevin Murphy.
  5. My aunt and uncle have had a family of these birds (2-3 juveniles and occasionally an adult) visiting their yard in Black Forest, CO for the last 2-3 weeks. They show up at some point most days. I got a brief look (sadly, without binoculars) the other day and am quite certain that they are too large to be Sharp-shinned. Am I looking at Cooper's Hawks or Northern Goshawks? The speckled back, uneven tail-bands, and appearance of a light-colored supercilium make me think Goshawks based on Sibley, but I am not sure and would love thoughts. Thanks! Photo 1 Photo 2
