Description

Identification per James Bryant: an immature Cooper's hawk. "The spotty plumage is similar to the sharp-shinned hawk, and I can't see the tip of the tail, but given the scale of the fence I can see this is a bigger bird." Photo by Deborah Martin

Description

Juvenile, 2 hawks seen today in Jacaranda tree but 1 flew away before I could get a picture. This one moved from near a picnic table overlooking the pond, to a bald cypress tree and back and forth as people came to the lunch area and crows or ravens went near the tree. Then he went to the waterfall section of the creek for a drink. Green heron was nervous.

I've been seeing this fella for over a month along the trails. Usually with the bird flying away and capturing a blur in my camera. Today, I got the photo.

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.
