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 (www.ncfalconersguild.org),
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.
