Re: ***Weekly Wildlife Thread: Nov 3 - Nov 9***

Great selection Bob - love the hawk and sandpiper.  BTW - that hawk is likely not a red-tailed hawk - red-taileds, red-shouldereds, and broad-wingeds are all buteos, with stocky bodies and short, wide tails...that bird has an awfully long tail, marking it as a likely accipiter, which makes it probably a sharp-shinned or cooper's hawk - I'm guessing cooper's on that one as it looks like bigger feet and a squarer head than a sharp-shinned.
