Strong bird with dark bands on the tail.
Beautiful bird! Took me forever to get it out of my screened in porch unharmed. My Springer Spaniel was very inquisitive.
Thank you Herzog! Have a nature filled day.
Welcome to PN Kelly!
Just deleted one. Think I got it now. Well until next time... Thanks again.
Hey Kelly, I see you just added this spotting a 2nd time...and put it in the Raptor mission. You can just edit THIS spotting and put it in the mission...you can click "edit spotting" then on the right side, just click on the mission you joined and re-save the spotting. No need to re-submit the spotting! ;-)
they do get into things. I encountered one once that was trapped in a quail recall trap. While confined it ate the quail.
I'm brand new at this and I thank you very much for the information and patience. Tell me if anything isn't correct now.
How exciting!! That's a big catch!! ;-) As Karen asked, would you please change the common and scientific name per her instructions below, and only use the name of the bird in the future. When you check the "unknown" box on a spotting, it puts it in a category where people will help identify what you've got. Once you have the species and common name, it removes it from the unknown list and becomes part of the Noah database. Also, I would love you to add this spotting to the mission Raptors of North America: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8627...Thank you!
Great site on the Cooper's Hawk. You can learn soooo much from Project Noah.
This is a juvenile Cooper's Hawk! They are bird eaters and often catch prey on the fly. It probably went after a bird and got stuck in your screened in porch. Young and inexperienced! Luckily he had you to get him out of this situation!
Welcome to Project Noah Kelly!What a great encounter! This is actually a Coopers hawk. Please can you update the ID in edit with the correct common & scientific name. We would also appreciate it if you could just add the name in future - any additional info should go in the notes.
Lat: 34.03, Long: -81.04
