    While I was waiting for the Eagles to appear today, this guy flew over. The closest match that I can find in my Sibley is the Sharp-shinned Hawk, but I'm not at all sure. Anyone have a more accurate ID?

    Frank,
    Looks like a Coopers Hawk, but I am not positive.

    NIce catch Frank,

    These guys all look alike to me. I really can't tell one from the other.
     
  5. Looks liek a cooper but the differnece is so msall between the hawk species I will defer until Janet chimes in
     
  6. Looks like a Cooper's Hawk to me:
    original.
    NIKON D100    ---    300mm    f/6.3    1/180s   


    but a Cooper's Hawk is medium sized, and a Sharp Shinned is smaller.
