This slender Hawk is a lookalike to a Coopers Hawk but much thinner features and very different vocals. He hame ripping in last evening while I was visiting with my resident Barred Owl, Gracie. The robins were going psycho like they do around Owls and the Sharp Shin added to the ruckus! Mind you with his arrival the robins vanished. The verbal assault lasted about 5 minutes and 2 different arrivals. These Hawks sure don't like the competition around!
Meanwhile Gracie made cooing sounds and tried to sleep :)))
Hello guy with a camera!! The Robins and Hawk sure are annoying but I am getting use to your loud camera clicks! :))
