First Coopers Hawk Sighting (could be Sharp Shinned too)

by Jo-Anne Cambridge
(Richmond Hill)




I was walking my dog in Richmond Hill, Ontario, the other day and heard this weird chirping in the bush.


I had brought my camera hoping for a good bird picture and was rewarded. I did not know what kind of bird it was but in researching it looks to be either a Coopers or Sharp Shinned Hawk (I'm leaning toward Coopers).

Here are a couple of pictures.

Thank you for telling us about your Hawk sighting, and for the wonderful pictures too!

Hello

This is a Coopers Hawk for sure and when you said you were leaning towards the Cooper you were completely right.
