Oh! That must be it, because it looked as though its feathers were all fluffed out when it landed and kind of messy and disheveled. I wondered if it had fed and was drying things out!

Thank you! I thought sharp shinned because the tail looked pretty straight across to me, and it was quite small, though that isn't a sure sign between that and cooper.

I'm sure that's what it was. Thanks Tom!

Hi Eve, possibly a juvenile Sharp-Shinned, or juvie Cooper's Hawk? Similar tail feathers.

According to Sibley "all perched accipiters can show bright white spots on back when feathers are fluffed".

Cool! Tom

What would be sharp shin size with the same tail but white spots kind of like a red tail on its back instead of plain slate grey? I couldn’t see his front
