p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Red Tail, Red Tail Go Away - or is it a Cooper's Hawk?


Some Red Tail pics from SJWS this week, ending with him being chased by a Mockingbird.

I've just been nicely corrected, apparently it's a Cooper's Hawk not a red tail!

Thanks for looking!
BOB

Nicely done Bob! The compositions with the bare twigs is perfect to me. The grey day added value too in my opinion and the detail in the hawk really pops.

Thanks for posting.

Beautiful images of an adult Cooper's Hawk, Bob. The Eastern Kingbird is chasing a immature Red- tail. I really love the first two.

Thanks Rec, you are correct on the Cooper's but the small bird is a mockingbird, we don't have eastern kingbirds here out west!
