Birds - Cooper's Hawk
Class:Aves Order:Falconiformes Family:Accipitridae


Cooper's Hawk, Accipiter cooperii. The Cooper's Hawk has three dark bands on its long tail feathers. The breast is speckled with light brown markings on a white belly. This hawk is a predator, hunting smaller birds for dinner. There may be Sharp-shinned Hawks mixed in this gallery. I still struggle with telling the difference between Sharp-shinned Hawks and Cooper's. This guide helps a little: http://feederwatch.org/learn/tricky-bird-ids/coopers-hawk-and-sharp-shinned-hawk/

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
