Hawk

Hawk
Hawk

We're not certain what type of hawk this is. It may be a Cooper's hawk, since we read they have a grey head and wings. But many Cooper's hawk pictures are mostly brown. If this is a Cooper's hawk, I'm not sure what hawk we photographed last week. Our best guess is that this one is mature and the other a juvenile.

There are two of these birds in my area. One is very large and the other is about the size of a small crow. I, too, thought it was a Cooper's hawk, but see that Cooper's hawks are more brownish.
The small one this morning did pin a finch to the ground and it's behavior was similar to that of a Cooper's.
