TITLE: A Cooper's Hawk dines on our back yard fence.
DESCRIPTION: Outer tail feathers of the Cooper's hawk are shorter than the inner tail feathers which gives the tail a rounded look and it can be seen clearly in this view of the tail. Sharp-shinned tails have a much squarer look to them. Note also the gray nape seen clearly as the bird reaches down to eat.
