This is Mom and Daughter, Couldn't get Dad in the frame, he is about 3" taller with a lot of gold tip's on the tail and gold spotted breast. Finally got them to come in closer. Won't come in to perch if I'm sitting out side.

He usually set's above them and just watches. They where whipping around the tree's like pylon's. Then take a break and perch -then do it again. I figure it was a flying training day of sort's.

Mom and Dad will jump in the water - Daughter just so far waddles thru the wet grass - duck like and stupid., dragging her bottom, then jump's up to perch.

It could be the Coopers hawk OR the Sharp-shinned Hawk.Both are great flyers through the trees.

Cooper's are alot bigger then sharp-shine

Cooper's--
Length: 14-16 in. (male); 16-19 in. (female)
Weight: 10-14 oz. (male); 17-24 oz. (female)
Wingspan: 28-30 in. (male); 31-34 in. (female)
Eye's are more to the front
Description: The Cooper's hawk is a short-winged, long-tailed forest-dwelling raptor. Cooper's hawks closely resemble the smaller sharp-shinned hawk, but can be distinguished by the curved tip of the tail with broad white terminal band compared to the squared tip on the tail of the sharp-shinned hawk. Cooper's hawks have a larger, squared head emphasized by its tendency to raise its hackles. The head projects far beyond wrists on a gliding bird, and they have five notched primaries. Cooper's hawks eyes look smaller in the head than sharp-shinned hawks.

Sharp-Shine--
Length: 9-11 in. (male); 11-13 in. (female)
Weight: 3-4 oz. (male); 5-8 oz. (female)
Wingspan: 20-21 in. (male); 23-26 in. (female)
Eye's are more center'ed
Description: The small sharp-shinned hawk has the typical short round wings and long tail of the accipiters. It can be distinguished from the Cooper's hawk by its small size and the squared-off shape of the tip of its tail. Its eye is placed in the center of the rounded head. In flight the small head barely projects beyond the leading edge of the wings.

Need a better pic there Jack, but I would say they are Cooper's,, XGM/VGM

I'll Try to get a better pic , they are getting pretty use to me & almost can call em in. Photo was taken thru the screen door -tossed the EDM off in the flash " The White" background haze. But I can stand their in full view maybe 6' - 7' away and they watch me .

I think they maybe Coopers. Dad usually show's up by bombing vertical thru the canopy of top cover and exit's the area. I've seen him do a full roll as he thread's thru some other foliage while he exit's. Got a martin house full of sparrow's - and I think he may be picking them off. Stinking fast though.

Grey go online and download a mp3 or wave file of hawk calls, record it to a portal cd, or cassett player, put it out in the yard and let it play. Maybe throw a old brown sock on the ground they might think it's a rat, squirll or something and come in close for a look see.

Hard too explain: But " They " know when I step out in my Old Ratty Robe with my gallon of 110 Black Mud , Two Menthol's & to scratch and itch. Some time's I get a bit nervous around the squirrels and turkey's. " Nottin under but my whites " Some have started waiting.

Think I got a Raccoon or Possum mad at me - I'm missing the drip can off the bottom of the grill - Hope it's not on his head I also got a Fat Wood Chuck - that is grumpy if I Turn on a radio in the yard- He stop's sunning on the rocks and waddles off chirping and giving me the eye. Bad is when they just stand around - giving you that look.

Kinda Like the Cooper : Head's seem different ? These head's seem to be little lower and compact - kinda set back- and don't have the yellow bridge on the beak. Then the speckled breast plate's.
The tail on Dad is tipped in gold. Dad even seem's to have bit of gold flake in his feathers. Diffinitly bigger than the sharp. The speckled breast plate must be some form of camouflage.

Oh Scoobie ??? what do we have

Telling ya it's a Red Tail Hawk, just because the name says red tail does not mean all of them have red tails. Tail Varies.

First one is a Juvenile


[newrow]

We got oodles of them around here.

I'm sure they are wide spread across the usa.

Here's a red tail call.

Did you listen to the call above?

I love sound of red tails they talk to me all time.

And I tell them how pretty they are, boy are they. Beautiful does not do'um justice.

Hmmm...The red tail hawk seem to have a lot of thin stripes along the tail. The original pic it only has 2 or 3 thick stripes. Also the red tail seem to have more feathers running down their legs.

Maybe stripes on tail features are like rings in a tree, good years or bad.
