Poor Tweety

I found this little fella having a snack in our backyard today. I’m not 100% sure if it’s a Sharp-shinned hawk (Accipiter striatus) or a Cooper’s hawk (Accipiter cooperii). We have an abundance of feeders in the backyard and attract all sorts of small birds that this bird could predate on. I’d love to hear peoples opinions on identification. You can find a couple more shots here.

Cheers,

Scott

    That is most definitely a sharp shinned hawk. Nice photos!
