Bird of the Month: Cooper’s Hawk

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Cooper's hawk
Cooper’s hawks tend to fly low to the ground when pursuing their prey.  They’ve been known to  linger near  residential bird feeders, ambushing unsuspecting smaller birds. When in flight, their wing motion is a distinctive flap-flap-glide pattern. They are common residents of the riparian habitat along the San Diego River in Santee. We frequently see them in the Mission Creek neighborhood and at Mast Park.
