1. Very cool! Great pics, and I’m so glad he didn’t fly away. I love Louise’s drawings and sense of things! It’s always exciting to me to see a hawk, and even feels like a privilege.

    It looks like a redtail to me… I would expect a Cooper’s to be smaller, with a longer tail. This fellow is big and chunky, and looks to have similar breast and head coloration to the redtails we see around here.

  2. I’d have to hear him to give it a good guess. I share your excitement for catching him in a photo. I had a common night hawk swoop right over my head in the backyard the other day – it was there and gone in an instant – but very exciting to see. I would have loved even a blurry photo!
