Description

I was walking with a broad-brimmed straw hat on so did not see this bird at first. I walked under the coast live oak tree, where there was a flock of small birds (species unknown). Suddenly the small birds dispersed and there was a crashing sound in the tree. I was sure it was the Cooper's hawk I had spotted the previous Friday. It's hunt unsuccessful, it flew through the nearby birch trees and landed on the fence within the branches. I continued walking forward and stopped, meeting eyes with the hawk. It then flew to the roof across the street where I was able to obtain a photograph.

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.
