Five Shots: The Hawk


I just had a visitor. He sat perched on my balcony ledge in AZ.ย  Is he a Cooper Hawk? Not a bald eagle, I don’t believe. What kind of hawk is he?






What a treat this morning. Any ideas?

    1. Shoot. Well, maybe it’s a falcon. I don’t know, either. He was a welcome visitor, that’s for sure. He was facing the house and I was behind the blinds and created a peep hole for myself. I had to hurry, for he did not stay long.


  1. Beautiful photographs, you must have had very steady hands to make the most of that opportunity.
    Sadly I’ve no idea what kind of hawk it is. In silhouette it reminds me of The Maltese Falcon, although most things in life tend to remind me of movies.
    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.


  2. Hi, Cindy:

    Absolutely superb photos!

    I’m leaning more toward Ptarmigan (Falcon) with its hooked upper beak. Search some Bird Watching sites and re post with the photos attached. I’m sure you’d get a more confident answer quickly!
