This is a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk, which can be seen from the brown upper feathers and streaks of brown on the under feathers. Adults have blue-gray upper feathers and dark bands on the tail and under the wings. Cooper’s Hawks mainly eat small birds and sometimes feast on chipmunks, hares, and squirrels.
