Could they be a Red Shoulder and a Coopers?. Very cool to get two different hawks in the same frame.


A little L goes a long way.

Fantastic timing and must have been so exciting to see these two beauties at the same time so close to each other! Looks like a Northern Harrier and a Cooper's to me. Love both captures you have shared ~ the tall grass must be providing 'home`sweet-home' to a lot of rodents for these Hawks to be so neighbourly at the hunting grounds. Well done Tom!

Edit minutes later = these could be a male & a female Northern Harrier as their colours are different depending on gender. I'm very interested in knowing what these two Hawks are. :)

My .02 cents, The brown one is a juvenile Northern Harrier because of the rusty unstreaked chest. The gray bird is a Cooper's hawk because of the "capped" appearance and the absence of a white rump like the Harriers have. Neat shots Tom.

Agreed that the one on the left, in the first shot, is a Northern Harrier; I can't tell what the other one is, myself...I'll have to defer to the others on that one

Great job everyone. A harrier and a coop's. In the second picture, if you did not see it, the coop's is on the fence post right across from the Harrier. I stopped to take the shot of the coops, it flew down to that fence line, then the Harrier flew in and landed there. They looked at eachother but that was about it. A minute later, the coops flew off, and I went back to work. : )

I agree with everyone else, juvenile northern harrier and adult Cooper's (could be female because of the size.) I'll name them, Chad and Suzie.
