Taken at Reid Park Tucson,AZ 2010

Cooper’s Hawk preys on small birds, often making swift surprise attacks at bird feeders. Because of the similar bold raids on domestic poultry , this species was once shot as a “chicken hawk” and a bounty was paid for it; this practice was ended in the mid-20th century.

Coopers is a very common sight in autumn migration, as well as in deciduous and mixed woodlands.

Identification Pale nape fives capped look, heavier legs and longer tail than Sharp-shinned Hawk

VOICE A nasal kih, much lower-pitched than Sharp-shinned Hawk, usually given in long, staccato, chattering series.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    He’s a beaut, Kimberly – lovely shot! I’m glad I’m not a small bird…… ;o)

  • Thanks Krys ~ I would agree. Truth is that these guys are the size of a crow. Small compared to a retailed or ferruginous lol!
