Way freaking cool. I knew accipiters were designed for woodland pursuit, but to see the mechanics at work is, as you say, pretty incredible.

As it turns out, this morning I saw a Cooper's hawk--close kin to the goshawk--in a wooded section of Central Park, chowing down on a pigeon (while a nearby blue jay went nuts harassing it). Further proof that the whole woodland pursuit stuff really works well for them.

It was a juvenile bird, and since the juvenile Cooper's and goshawk look very similar, I kept checking it to make absolutely sure it was a Cooper's. (A goshawk in NYC would be a coup to find.) Despite my best efforts to make it into something even more fabulous, a Cooper's it remained.

I also had an osprey flying overhead this morning. And some people think Manhattan just has pigeons! (One less as of this morning, thanks to the Cooper's hawk)

My dad says he has some small hawks over in his neighborhood (not that far away), and I've heard an owl on occasion. No real surprise since Waco is surrounded by rural communities, there's a creek really nearby, and we've got mourning doves coming out the wazoo. Still it's neat when you go out and hear an owl in the middle of a city. Still doesn't beat the fox I chased in a car down my mom's alley in Garland one night, but still cool.

There was a small hawk of some type overhead here a few weeks ago when I was out talking to the neighbors.

I'm glad you can tell what they are. I'm limited to a half dozen birds on sight and two or three voices. One of them an owl. LOL

Hawks are pretty obviously hawks -- at least if they are flying low.
