I normally just take landscape pictures and pictures of our 22 month old son. Today I was walking by the kitchen is saw something outside on my son's water table that happened to be sitting right outside our sliding glass door. I thought it was a plastic hawk or something somebody put there then he moved his head. I think he either landed on the table to get some water or my son had a little elephant bath toy that was floating in the water table upside down that is a little sun bleached that could have looked like a mouse. These were taken with my 5d mkiii and my 70-200 mkii from about 12' though my sliding glass door. Anyone know what type of hawk it is?

Thanks

Look to me like a Red Shouldered Hawk. If you post in the Bird forum, there will be experts on birds that will nail the ID.

The 2nd photograph is the best for ID. It is a young Cooper's Hawk....most likely a male by the small feet, smallish head for Cooper's, and overall proportions but judging size can be very misleading from photos. Note the flat head and larger bill than sharp-shinned, the "tawny" head, narrow streaks on chest (disregard the barred flamks that are fluffed out), and wide buffy tips to upperwing coverts. These male Cooper's are the ones that always get called Sharp-shinned Hawks!!!!!

Great shots how ever it turns out, well done. Be careful and don't get addicted like me, it may be too late with pretty shots like these. Lol......

Haha I know what you are saying. I was like this 70-200 is way to short to do this. I need something longer. :)

Very nice shot. Every time I see a Cooper's, juvie or otherwise, I miss the opportunity for a photo. You didn't miss the opportunity, and made great use of it. Well done.

It's a little plastic table you fill with water for small kids to splash and play in.
