So Much for That

[Tom Johnson quipped, "Fifteen [sic] ways to tell Sharp-shinneds from Cooper's" after we watched this Cooper's Hawk, and several others, pass the hawk watch in last Saturday's high winds with their tails obviously cocked upward when they glided, a character that is supposed indicate Sharp-shinned.  Scroll down to the October 11 post to see "Sixteen Way's to Tell Sharp-shinned Hawks from Cooper's Hawks" (you may need to click the "older posts" button at the bottom of the blog to get there). I'm keeping the cocked tail on there, but will add the caveat that high winds change things. . .Click to enlarge photo.]
