Hello everyone, I was lucky yesterday when I saw this little guy, actually went to the back door, lowered the glass, set up with a noisy, of course chair and had quite a while watching this guy from the back room, sitting in my little chair, handsome fella. I am quite sure I have this one right, it is either a Sharpy or a Coopers watching on a cold windy day for a little guy for dinner. This same guy was out back bamboo diving tonight, came out empty.
Beautiful Hawk, great eyes

First of all, these are AMAZING pictures---exposure and sharpness couldn't be better.

I'd call this a Coop; the generally tubular proportion (including the prominent head), the set of the eyes, the shape and terminal banding of the tail and the thickness of the legs all support that ID, as does the marking on the breast.

I am continually amazed at the sharpness exhibited in the forum and this is another instance. Very well done!

Thank You Noah, I will go on the record, I say Cooper as well, though my track record is not very good, Heh, I don't think I have ever gotten it right! Thanks to my pal below! heh
Thank You again for the kind words!

Always great views coming from you; VERY sharp, nice lighting! I'd say you're correct, definitely one of the two :p

It's a Duck!
Always enjoy your captures Bret. Beautiful compositions of wonderful subjects like this Accipiter. I really like the 1st and 3rd the best.
I just wish for once, or maybe twice, I could get the hawks here to slow down enough for me to grab a capture or 2.:confused:
