Juvenile sharp-shinned or cooper's hawk?
No worries. Have you come to a conclusion yet?
Thanks for the info armadeus.4. I'm leaning towards the juvenile Cooper's Hawk.
Hi Thurd13, I was trying to do some searching on this beautiful hawk (because I've never heard of it before) and come across this site: http://feederwatch.org/learn/tricky-bird... which gives some explanations about the differences in both of the hawks you mentioned...hope this helps :)
