i think this is a Coopers Hawk
This one is really neat!!
caught the perfect moment here
Very nice shot! <3
Oh gosh I love this one
It think it's a Ferruginous Hawk
it was too small
Well, it's a Buteo and not an Accipiter (red-tail and relatives vs coopers and relatives) and it has all the markings of a Ferruginous... size isn't always a good guide without other birds for reference.
i dunno...i have a few more posting but it was a cloudy days so the pics were dark
Oh well, the pics you have posted of him are fabulous... and I remembered something else! The males can be quite a bit smaller than the females, I believe, so that may be part of what you're seeing
oh! i didn't think of that and it kind of acted like a ferry hawk too....it flew then came right back and just watched me.....
great moment captured! flawless execution
thank you so much! now i just have to figure out what it is... i thought it was a Coopers Hawk but it's belly was so white....not sure....and thanks for the view and comment...i really appreciate it
