I’ve been seeing a lot of hawk activity in the neighborhood recently. This morning we hit the jackpot. Please help me identify this huge and gorgeous visitor that had a leisurely meal in my backyard:
Goshawk? a dark form of red tail? immature red-shoulder? (Bird ID is not my strength as a naturalist!)
Addendum: I’ve been told by a local authority that it’s a Cooper’s hawk. Any other opinions?
