A medium-sized hawk with the classic accipiter shape: broad, rounded wings and a very long tail. In Cooper’s Hawks, the head often appears large, the shoulders broad, and the tail rounded.
Wooded habitats from deep forests to leafy subdivisions and backyards.
You’re most likely to see one prowling above a forest edge or field using just a few stiff wing beats followed by a glide.
