Subject: Re: [MBBIRDS] banded raptor
Thanks to all who responded! - I was able to report the sighting to the USGS Bird Banding Lab and to the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory. The general consensus was that it was a Cooper’s Hawk (which the GGRO bands with green; they band Red-tailed hawks with red), though a thought that it was a juvenile RTHA was remarked, and the bands on the tail still seemed a bit thin for a COHA.

Thanks again,
Bethany

On April 14th my husband noted a raptor across the street - he loves photography and knows I love birds, so he went to photograph it as I ran out with binoculars. My first thought was that it was a juvenile cooper’s hawk - but the tail stripes didn’t look quite right.
