Hawk

While looking at other birds on the memory card I spotted this one. I photographed this hawk in October, in my neighbors huge tree.
I heard it calling and had never heard it before which is what alerted me to grab the camera. It had a call that seemed very "small" to me, in comparison to its' size.
I think it is either a Sharp-shinned or a Cooper's hawk. What do you think?

  1. So on Sunday morning while enjoying our coffee a truck stops in front of our house. Two men get out, both with cameras, one with a very high powered lens. One guy starts looking through binoculars at the back of our house & when hubby went to find out what was going on, he discovered they were following our hawk. There it was in that tree again. They told us that it is indeed a Cooper's Hawk & probably nesting somewhere nearby.
