After I ate dinner, I stopped by this park at Dalworthington Gardens. Saw neat things, yet again. :)

I *think* this is a young cooper's hawk, but unfortunately, some car spooked it to prevent it from eating this blue jay it had nabbed.

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.
