a very close call with one of my squirrels today with this cooper's hawk
I saw a copper's hawk fly around the Outdoor Adventure Center. It rested in the same tree as the juvenile Red-tailed hawk.
noisy pair, impossible image from lousy phone
Having some L.A. runoff water in a driveway on Norton Ave.
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.
