This was taken over the summer, I would like to get much better at identifying hawks. Can someone let me know what this one is? At the time I had a murder of six crows, she would dive bomb them, I’ve gotten very friendly with the crows, and at one point, I walked out to intervene, and she swooped over me. The power or of this bird was incredible seeing it close up and also very scary. Learned my lesson that day.


Predatory birds



I took this photo over the summer in my Amhurst New York yard (Buffalo). Is this a Cooper’s hawk? I’d like to get better at identifying hawks. This one is a daily hunter of my crows.
