Can someone help me identify this bird?
Great capture!! I'd love you to add this spotting to the mission Raptors of North America: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8627...
Accipiters (Coop/Sharpie/Gos) have longer tails. Dana is correct, this is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk. Only adults have the red tails.
It sure looks like a immature Cooper's Hawk.Accipiter cooperiihttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coopers_Haw...
