a hawk? methinks so.

this is what i woke up to, not three feet from my back door. wow.


  1. Morning bird feast! Looks like a sharp-shinned hawk. Very stealth forest-flier. Likes to pick off birds. The long striped tail gives it away, though it could also be a cooper's hawk or Merlin - did you identify it?

  2. i'm thinking cooper's hawk, but i'm not sure. an immature one due to the breast coloring, tho'.

  3. wow. pretty cool. my son would have loved this sighting! xo m.
