Hawk ID
by: Frank

The Cooper's Hawk ID is correct, but more specifically it is an Accipiter of which there are 3 species here in Ontario.
Good yard bird for the winter months.

Oshawa Bird ID

This is a Cooper's Hawk. His smaller look alike, the Sharp-shinned hawk, would not go for a pigeon. Both enjoy hanging out at backyard bird feeders.

Cooper is the #1 hawk to hunt birds in the forest!
