Posts Tagged ‘sharp-shinned hawk’

Just spotted him a 1 PM today today, February 24th is huge 4-5 foot diameter oakĀ tree in the back yard. He was busy watching the songbirds feed at the 3 feeders I keep filled back there. Suddenly, he lurched off the tree and was hot on the pursuit of a American Goldfinch that he barely missed. I believe it was a Cooper’s Hawk based on visuals. Both Cooper’s and Sharp-shinned Hawks are small, fast, hawks with long tails. As raptors then tend to find spots with lots of bird activity and hang out there:
