Immature Cooper's Hawk
(2 of 21) (18303 views)

20170130_20170129_162107_T17_2684.jpg

An immature hawk landed unexpectedly in my garden yesterday. It was first on a small brush pile then flew to this fallen tree which is only about six feet off the ground. It looked around, flew to the ground then flew away. I was only able to get a couple of quick shots through my window before he was gone. Anyone know what kind of hawk this is?

Update: This hawk has been identified as a Cooper's Hawk.

When the Bushtits came, everyone else stepped aside and let them eat their fill. Luckily they were very fast.
