Cape May - Sparrow and raptor

Recommended Posts

Cape May earlier this week and went birding through a couple areas.

I saw this Sparrow - my guess a Field Sparrow at Higbee Wildlife Management Area.  I'm thinking it is because of the un-streaked breast, pink bill and eye ring.

Later that at Cape May Point State I park I saw a couple raptor (bald eagle and ospreys!) But there was a raptor I caught on camera that I can't discern. I think it's Sharp-shinned Hawk. But I know that they closely resemble Coopers Hawk.   If I recorded it on video I could see if the flight patterns are like a sharp-shinned or a coopers - I heard that's that best way to tell.

Thanks for your help! I have learned so much from you guys!
