Cooper's Hawk - Accipiter cooperii Peachtree Park - July 27, 2015

Cooper’s Hawk – Accipiter cooperii
Peachtree Park – July 27, 2015

We’ve been hearing calls that we thought were the Pileated Woodpecker, but they didn’t quite sound right.  We didn’t think they were the calls of a Cooper’s Hawk either.

And then late this morning we spotted this juvenile Cooper’s hawk 75-80 feet up at the top of a large oak behind our yard making begging calls for food.  We think he’s a juvenile because of the thin dark streak on his chest, best seen in the photo below. This bird was on the move and was off again quickly.  Watch out those of you who look like a hawk morsel!
