Subject: [CT Birds] Cooper's hawk ID? & other stuff
1/5 So I think I have a photo of a Cooper's Hawk on my morning
(9:30AM)walk in Orange. According to descriptors that Jim Z. and Brian W. sent me
comparing Cooper's and Sharpies, I am venturing to ID this as a Cooper's. If
not, tell me I am wrong, please. Also on my morning walk by my neighbor,
I didn't see a Northern Goshawk, but I will check again tomorrow and next
Also in the front yard in my Crabapple tree and on the ground under it were
about 40 robins devouring the apples. Last year for the CBC that
crabapple tree was bare. Two years ago it was chock full of apples around this
season too. No cedar waxwings though. A Northern Flicker has been hammering
away into the ground and must be getting some good stuff. Even in the
deep snow, I watched as snow flew everywhere as it hammered into the ground.
One other aside....I enjoy reading each person's stories and anecdotes
about their birding adventures. Would it be a bestseller if everyone here
contributed some of their best birding stories and publish a book?!
