  • We saw a bird very similar to this in our back yard on Maple St yesterday afternoon.Blurry photo as he was flying away attached. My husband thinks he may have been attracted by our bird feeder.
    Does any know if they go after kitties? We have a 5 lb kitty who only goes out in our back garden. I know of people who have had their small cats taken away by hawks.

  • Good call and video. Looks like an immature Cooper’s – still, it’s difficult to differentiate from Sharp-Shinned Hawk.
