Description

I hate juvenile hawks. Grow up already! This looks a lot like Cooper's to me. Only thing throwing me off is highly prominent white spotting on head and back.

Think it was the same bird I saw this AM. The pigeons around here are a nervous lot. Now I know why.

It seens like there are two hawks. One of them has brown beast and grey back. It's my second time to see this brown bird in the same tree, while the first time was one month ago. Another big bird appears near this bird. I am not sure if these two big birds in same photo near each other are same kind of hawk.

A hawk munching on a Mallard it just caught! Closest I could get without disturbing the rest still on the pond. Seems like a rather small juvenile when compared to the water bottle directly behind them, can't pinpoint an ID.

Description from Wikipedia

Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) is a medium-sized hawk native to the North American continent and found from Southern Canada to Northern Mexico. As in many birds of prey, the male is smaller than the female. The birds found east of the Mississippi River tend to be larger on average than the birds found to the west.
