Only one bird...

at the feeders that morning.
Less than perfect pictures. My excuse is 60+ feet away through double pane window glass and a 10 year old Tamron 70-300. But the main reason is the photographer. This was taken Jan 2016 so hopefully I'm a little better now.
I believe it's a Cooper's Hawk but I'm sure there are many here who can confirm or correct.

Yes, it is a Cooper's Hawk. You can learn more at https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Coopers_Hawk/id.

And I agree with i080123. Great picture.

Thank you. Sometimes I am hard on myself but I am happy that I am making progress. I just have to start posting more to get more feedback to help my journey.

Thank you Rusty. I enjoy birds but am not always good at ID, especially hawks. But I think I drive my wife nuts because almost every time we drive somewhere I point out hawks along the way.

You're welcome. Hawks are cool. BTW, allaboutbirds, run by Cornell Labs, is a great sight for info on birds. They also have a bird ID app called Merlin, where you can enter characteristics of the bird you're seeing to ID it. (Not recommended for use while driving though.)

This is a terrific capture of a Cooper's hawk...how does he expect to capture anything that close to the feeder!!
