Maureen Makings took this photo of a hawk that landed in her garden. Does anyone know what kind it is? One person says it is a red tail hawk, another says it is a Cooper's hawk because of the yellow legs and black banding in the tail. Another person now says they do not believe it is a red tail, but possibly a Cooper or a Sharp Shinned hawk, depending on its size. Both these hawks like to frequent feeders for the birds that go there.  Either way it's a beautiful bird. We've got the answer!  And it is official, a big thank you to Bob Pendergrass, President of the North Carolina Falconers Guild (, who had this to say "
Great picture. Definitely an immature male Coopers hawk. The legs and toes are too thick for a sharpshin and the eye placement and size is a little different. The female Cooper's has a different conformation of the head to the body size."  Also thanks to the guys at Blue Ridge PC Computer Repair for letting us know about Bob.
