  1. Hi all, This one seems to be an immature Cooper's hawk mostly due to tail (looked more rounded in flight, outer tails appear to be shorter than inner ones while perched) and the way it flew as I watched it, wondering if others feel sure of this and what other cues might people use. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41792192 Thank you, Graham
  2. I saw this one way out in the marsh at Bayou Savage, New Orleans today. The white cheeks and dark plumage initially made me think it was a Peregrine, but it was quite large and the streaks on its stomach are very bold. Just reaching out for input. Anyone have any ideas?
  3. What kind of Hawk?

    Spotted this hawk in Central Florida today in a preserve near Disney. I can’t tell if it is a broad-winged hawk or an immature red tailed hawk. What do you think?
  4. Juvenile Red-Tailed Hawk??

    I'm new to birding and quite awful at identifying hawks. I believe this is a juvenile red tailed hawk but i'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Three recent sightings of ours I'd really like to confirm: First pic: South shore Long Island, NY, midwinter. No size reference, but I'm thinking Lesser Scaup because the light here catches the purplish sheen and shape of the head pretty well. Second: Central New Hampshire, early August. Beautiful raptor! My son, after consulting pictures online, feels somewhat confident that this is a juvenile Broad-winged Hawk. Third: North shore Long Island, NY, last week. Not the greatest picture, but I'm really at a loss for this one. The only picture in Peterson's that even comes close for me would be a juvenile Snow Goose.
  6. Rough-legged?

    Seen this afternoon in Grimsby, ON. TIA
  7. I spotted this hawk chowing down on a bird in my backyard in south Florida. I think I have it narrowed down to a Cooper's hawk or a sharp-shinned hawk. I can tell you it was very small. Can anyone set me straight? Thanks in advance.
  8. I took these pictures in my backyard in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. My apologies for the low quality shots. I have some Better quality shots if necessary using a different camera which I can upload if necessary. Time of day is 1:00 pm, December 9, 2017.
  9. Need Hawk ID Please!

    Hi, I watched a squirmish between 3 hawks, and when I took a photo, followed the 3rd one (which was a Red-tailed Hawk), so only got 1 photo of each of the other Hawks. I'm befuddled. The first one was white and black (it's head looks black but it is shadowed by the wing) and it's tail looks forked. The only bird that I can come up with is a Swallow-tailed Kite - which is impossible since they migrated. The second possibly a male Harrier? These were taken in North - central Texas. Thanks so much!
  10. Is this a Juvenile Goshawk?

    Today 10 AM in the morning at North Woods, Central park, NYC I observed this bird along with some other birders. I, being new to raptors bit confused about the ID. it had a white spot on the head which cant be seen in the photo. Please identify
  11. All within the past couple days in Southeast Michigan: 1. This goose was about the size of the Canada Geese. I assume it is a hybrid between a Canada Goose and something. What is it? 2. Fairly confident in these. Let me know if I'm wrong or missed anything. Canvasbacks, Redheads, Buffleheads on the right, and Hooded Mergansers in the back: 3. These were the best shots I could get.
  12. Perched along highway

    Tried getting this image while traveling (per the speed limit) along South Dakota's Rt 90, mid-October. Noticed several of these birds spaced many miles apart.
  13. Ferruginous Hawk?

    Hi! I took this picture yesterday from a very long distance and was the best picture I could get with a 400mm lens. It was a very large Hawk sitting on the roof of a very large barn. Can anyone help possibly ID it? Picture was taken in Tarrant County, Texas (near Ft. Worth, TX) Thanks!! I cant seem to delete this post - it double posted but the pictures are on the 2nd posting. Thanks for looking and please see the other post with pics.

  15. Hoping to ID 2 raptors in flight at quite a distance from a video losing focus. 2 Red-tailed? Thank you
  16. Cooper's Hawk?

    10/2/17 in Southeast Michigan
  17. Cooper's or Sharp-Shinned Hawk? Seen in vicinity of Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge (highway 84 San Mateo area) on 16 October 2017. https://www.whatbird.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/317951-coopers-or-sharp-shinned-hawk-sf-bay-16-october/&browse=1 https://www.whatbird.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/317950-coopers-or-sharp-shinned-hawk-sf-bay-16-october/&browse=1 https://www.whatbird.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/317949-coopers-or-sharp-shinned-hawk-sf-bay-16-october/&browse=1
  18. cooper's or sharpie?

    Austin, TX. 10/16/17, 8:20am. Saw this fella perched on my back fence.
  19. Red-shouldered Hawk?

    NOT MY PHOTO. Taken yesterday in Dearborn, MI
  20. Is there enough in these poor photos for an ID? I saw this bird today in Prince Edward County in southern Ontario, Canada.
  21. What type of hawk?

    Hello. We were sitting on the porch after a rainstorm and this guy parked on the dead tree down by the creek line. Sat there for a while drying his wings as some crows yelled and dived at him. I don't have the best camera but got some ok shots. I'm thinking a broad-winged hawk? He was medium to large sized. Very beautiful!
  22. Not like the normal Red Tails I see around here. What is it?
  23. What kind of hawk?

    Took these photos 8/8/17 in West Columbia, SC. I'm not sure what kind of hawk this is. I was thinking a Red-Tailed Hawk?
  24. White Hawk

    Been seeing two white hawk type birds with a black stripe across tail. Little black in the wings. Seen july about a week ago and Aug 8 2017.
  25. Hawk in So Cal

    http://garden.cathrynhatfield.com/2017/07/a-hawk-in-the-rose-of-sharon/ My brother took these photos of a hawk in our yard this am. We live in Fountain Valley in Orange County California, about 3 miles from coast and near the Santa Ana River. Is he a red tail hawk ? That is just a guess, or something else. He was after a black and yellow bird's babies we think as she was squaking at him. But we also have many lizards in the yard. Help with ID please. Thank you.
