Red eyes and black cap.He shares those traits with singerAlice P. Cooper.
Pretty bird! Oh wait that's for parrots!
Looks like it to me!
I am guessing it is a sharp-shinned. There are more of them around and like coniferous forests.
Nice pictures and it was nice of the bird to turn around so you could see both sides.
Fantastic pics! I'm thinking Cooper's... based on this bird's *cap* instead of a hooded look and the roundish shape of the tail.Look at the eyes!
I think it's a Cooper's. The tail is rounder and has a wider white band on the tip of it's tail. Beautiful capture!
I would vote Cooper's. We were taught to look at the tail. C shaped tail equals Cooper's and square shaped equals Sharp-Shinned and that sure looks like a C shaped tail to me.
Cooper for sure. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Coopers_Hawk/id
Coopers. Handsome fellow. We haven't seen Hannibal and the Missus in the oak out front yet this year but we expect them anytime.
Hi FC,Great shot. He looks like he was posing just for you! How close were you?Patti
DAWG! AbFab pichers! Cooper's, surely. Hey, I thought of you when I saw this freebie. Good today only, a free 8x10 collage at Walgreens.
I'm with the Coopers crowd.
don't know birds but great shot!
Coopers Hawk has my vote as well.Those darn things are getting to be like rats down here.But boy those pics are awesome!
Those are the red eyes of a cooper's hawk. But I'd want a second opinion, too. Excellent captures! I'm jealous.
How did I miss this post? Looks like a Cooper's to me. What a beauty.
Sorry, I am late on this post but that bird is awesome!
