Just watched this young raptor fly up my drive way and land on my garage roof. I got several images before he flew away, all from the rear. In this one you can see the blood on his beak. No prey was observed. He was close, 40' or so. The question: is this a Juvenile Cooper's Hawk or a Juvenile Sharp-shinned Hawk? Hoping the POTN experts call help me out, thanks. Hand held, center focus point, AI Servo, high speed continuous, slightly cropped. What a thrill!

Just editing to add this image, showing his nictitating membrane, taken just 100 milliseconds earlier. It must have been a close call for the dove or whatever.

Myself, I am leaning toward Sharp-shinned Hawk, but I am no expert, he seems small to me, with skinny legs, surely less than a year old.

Very nice shots. I'm going with juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk.

Seems like you travel alot, theres a small population of them in Chicago that are pretty easy to find. They are listed pretty extensively on ebird to where they are.

Viera was good to you!
We'll be there in a couple of weeks.
Kinda sad seeing civilization creeping up on it, and quickly :(
I'd still bet many critters won't leave but a local told me when we visited in November
the bobcats have already absconded.
