Coopers Hawk At The Dock
Sent in from Adam-
It’s definitely a cool raptor, but alas it’s a Cooper’s Hawk. Not as fast as a Peregrine in a stoop, but incredibly agile. These guys are specialists at chasing down birds in thick cover. Accipiters are fairly falcon-like hawks, and the two are easily confused.
Check out this video of a Peregrine Falcon snatching a bird right out of the sky-
