      4676676C-043D-4C70-98BF-2DAB321592ABI am hoping someone could help me ID this Hawk, it’s been visiting my backyard for the past few weeks.  I’ve done Merlin ID and it says it could be a Coopers Hawk, Sharp-shinned or Red Tail.  I live outside of Toronto, Ontario.   Thank you in advance, Kara

      Hello! This is an excellent picture of a Hawk. It is definitely an immature Hawk that is either Coopers or Sharp-Shinned. Would you say it was more the size of a crow, or a blue jay?  If it is closer to blue jay size, it is sharp-shinned, and if it is closer to a crow, it is a coopers. It is hard to tell, but Is our say the tail feathers are more rounded and therefore it is likely a coopers. This is more difficult since it is immature. I have had a Cooper’s hawk in my yard for quite awhile now, and I am fairly certain that is your bird. Happy Birding!

        Thank you for your response I would say closer to a crow.  Here’s another picture I caught of the hawk the other day, the expression makes me laugh...CD822BDA-179D-44B1-BA3D-FFC7E370B68A

        @Kara I am pretty sure this is a Cooper's Hawk.
