Re: “Hawk Murders Pigeon

Hi Ryan, I see you updated this post to say "possibly a Sharp-shinned or Cooper's Hawk" after my post here. That's great but I will say it again: this bird IS a COOPER'S HAWK for the aforementioned reasons. With such great photos you took of this bird it's quite possible to id this bird to species and not just leave it as an "acciptiter sp."

Re: “Hawk Murders Pigeon

Hi Ryan, This is actually a juvenile Cooper's Hawk, not a Sharp-shinned. In the last photo of it perched on the fence you can see the rounded tail feathers, the pattern of streaking on the breast is more like a Cooper's than a SSHA (more spotted on underparts). Also, even the largest female SSHA would not take large prey like a pigeon. Also note the stout legs on the bird, whereas SSHA has very thin, spindly-looking legs. Nice photos!!
