I want to call this a Cooper's Hawk

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I saw this accipiter at Mary's Peak near Eugene Oregon yesterday. Everything about it makes me think Cooper's Hawk (has a neck, doesn't look bug-eyed, the tail is tattered but round-ish), however it looked so small. I know "size lies" so, I'm guessing it's just an illusion, and/or a male Cooper's Hawk (smaller than females) and not a Sharpie. Amirite?

I've included a zoomed out photo on the fir tree, it was barely bitter than the fir cones. 🙂
