Mark Posted May 4, 2019 Share Posted May 4, 2019 Ok, I thought I was getting better with my hawks, but this guy I can't figure out. This was this early morning here in San Antonio. The backstory: the whole past week, my co-worker comes in the back gate by the airfield at Lackland/Kelly AFB and he told be about this pair of hawks he saw each morning perched on the fence by the airfield. The other side of the road has woods. He described them to me and I pulled up some pictures based upon what I thought they were based upon his description: Cooper's Hawks. So, this morning (Saturday) I went out to see if they were there and get pics. Sure enough, they were there. However, once I got home and downloaded the pics - they didn't look like the Cooper's Hawk reference pictures I used. The pair was there - but one was on the fence and the other was across the road in the trees. The one in flight is the bird that was in the trees and took off across the airfield after the one on the fence had taken off. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
