Cooper's Hawk
Accipiter cooperii

Uncommon/Year Round (15%)  RANK: 33

Although listed as uncommon, Cooper's hawks make frequent appearances and then disappear for weeks on end. Spring and deep winter bring these hawks to Hogsback Acre where they hunt songbirds attracted by the many feeders.  A Cooper's hawk nest was discovered on Hogsback Acre late in the 2020 season after the hatchlings had fledged. That fall, two young hawks were frequently observed in close company near the nest. 

One hawk was captured on video eating a garter snake.
