Why are you reporting this puzzle?

I labelled this as a Cooper's Hawk when I took it, but I'm never 100% sure of my hawk identification.
I think it's immature and its colors might not be fully developed.

I don't think I've seen a Cooper's lately, but there's a red-shoulder hawk that I frequently see at a nearby pond. Funny thing though about squirrels and hawks around here though - I've seen a squirrel harass and chase a hawk out of a tree!

michaelzehr, that is probably a Cooper's Hawk. It is extremely difficult to tell a Cooper's Hawk from the Shape-shinned Hawk, especially if the Cooper's is immature. The Sharp-shinned Hawk is smaller but if you don't have anything nearby for size perspective, that doesn't help much. Besides the size, the biggest difference is the end of their tail feathers when they are sitting. One tail is blunt on the end, and the other is more rounded. We have them both come into our yard and snatch birds off our feeders so I am not a fan of those hawks. I wish they would snatch some of the pesky ground squirrels that are tearing up our "back 40."

Thank you @Ann1000

A beautiful bird. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you @roseheather. Cornell has some great information for birding, and I appreciate that link - makes it pretty clear.

In related news, today I saw my first sandhill crane chicks of the year. (I'm in central Florida, so these are the non-migratory ones.)

Love the flared tail. We have had these in our yard in the past.

In this link*, scroll to the right and there is an immature hawk in flight and the band of white along the tail feathers is present. The Cornell site says that is a defining characteristic for the Cooper's Hawk.

Thanks @Lia, @patw. :)

As I recall I walked pretty close to this bush before noticing the hawk, so yes, very camouflaged. It kindly spread it's tail while I was watching.

That's definitely a Cooper's Hawk. Boy, when this is in pieces, you fully realize why this guy blends into his surroundings so well! Tough, fun puzzle. Thanks!

At first sight I thought the bird was in a cage!
But it are only branches!

Great picture, whatever hawk it is!!
