Juvenile Cooper's Hawk or . . .?

Recommended Posts

This hawk kept squawking, was thinking it is a juvenile Cooper's hawk?  In Palo Alto in july.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Yes, it's a juvenile. Next spring it will molt in the rusty bars on the underside and the gray tones on the back. The eyes will take a bit longer to complete their shift to red.
