Cooper's ??


Recommended Posts

This is a Cooper's Hawk.  Western Coops have blotchier streaking than the ones in the east.  This bird is too tall and tubular for a Sharpie, and its eyes are small, close to the front of the head, and have a fierce expression, its head is flat and pretty much even with the top of the bill, and the tail feathers are significantly graduated.

OK. I didn't know that the western Coops had broader streaking. Thanks for the correction! Learn something new every day...
