Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii)

21 July 2016
Avondale Park
Denton, Denton County, Texas

Cooper's Hawks nest at the tops of several large Eastern Cottonwood trees that line the creek's banks. Several could be heard calling in the vicinity of our presence including this one which is clearly a young bird fledged earlier this past spring. It can now hold its own though still audibly and visibly in the company of its immediate kin.

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.
