How to ID Cooper’s and Sharp-shinned Hawks: NARRATED
Telling the difference between a Cooper’s and a Sharpie is the most challenging distinction North American birders face. Thank you to Jean Swanson for lending me her footage of a Sharpie squeezing a Robin to death and to California Wildlife for his footage of a Cooper’s eating prey.
From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA, March 2019:
