  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.
  2. Hi all! I am new to the website and to birding. I've got some field guides but sometimes that's not quite enough, so I am hoping someone's expertise can help me out here! The bird was seen along the Fox River in Waukesha, WI, at a very urban section of the river that is pretty much always populated with people. It's where the river junctions with North Barstow street in downtown Waukesha - in case you wanted to google maps it. It was flying in, chasing after smaller birds, and then it landed in this tree RIGHT ABOVE MY HEAD for just a minute or two and then it was gone! My guess
  3. This juvenile hawk landed on a dock at MLK Shoreline Park in Oakland today, as a storm was approaching. My first guess was Cooper's Hawk, but the tail seems a bit short. Overall, he seems a better match to Cooper's than Sharp shinned, except for the tail... Thoughts?
  4. Took this today in Ridgefield Connecticut. Im not sure which hawk it is.
  5. When I saw this bird today at Jones Beach, NY, I thought it was too large to be a Sharpie and therefore probably was an immature Cooper's Hawk. Without a yardstick, however, my impression of size could be very wrong. Also, the second view shows what appears to be a notched tail. View 1 View 2 I need the opinion of someone more knowledgeable than myself.
  6. September 2008, Lexington, central SC. The shot was taken in a panic through a damp window screen before the bird flew off. Indeed, he was there only long enough for me to notice him, grab the camera, and get one truly mediocre shot (at best). I'm pretty sure it's a young Accipiter. Is the apparent lack of low streaking and the width of the white tail band enough to call this a Cooper's, or is the photo unidentifiable? Thanks!
  7. I went into the kitchen and looked out the window to see a Cooper's Hawk and a Squirrel at a standoff. There was another squirrel and a cardinal nearby. I am not sure why the hawk didn't attack the squirrel. If you know, let me know.
