Description

Adult bird with pigeon in talons. Photos by Cesar Mendez. When startled, this hawk flew away with the pigeon, but then dropped on it on some cars parked along the street nearby. The hawk flew to a perch and waited there for hours, as if it was hoping for the right conditions to retrieve the pigeon.

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.
