Thanks for the tip, Font! I had not even considered that it might have been inaccurate..."...it's on the internet...it must be true " !

Sometimes right after I wake up , get coffee, and check e-mail, I may not be thinking clearly, yet...at 63 & 1/2 , sometimes there's fog on the mountain!!

I try to use GA DNR search results first.

No sweat. I've learned from many of my own unsuccessful bird ID attempts to not trust Google Images or really anything other than a University or professional organization's web site for IDs.

Like you, I do like to use local organizations when possible.

Red shoulder. I see more of them in Atlanta than any others. Have had a nesting pair behind my house for years and they fly and call their territory every morning. Seen them mate twice in big oak tree just out front door. Gotta love Cornell for birds.

True-True Font. Not many birds I can't identify when I see them (Georgia/Southeast Coast) but occasionally something pops up and I gotta dig the noculars and books out. The internet stuff is great but not all inclusive. Many birds have a variety of chirps, clucks, screeches and cackles but the internet will only have one audio file, Mockingbirds have 100's of noises. Been a birder for 40 years. Always enjoy seeing a bird that makes me dig the books out.

This is obviously a cobra-hawk for the lack of a chicken in it's mouth...DUH.

We live in an older area of NE Cobb with lots of nice trees left & see the hawks quite often. Even had one land in a tree 10' from the kitchen window. There is a nesting pair near by. Have seen a few & Ospreys along the area waterways. Mother Nature is a beautiful thing!

Default My vote's for broad-winged hawk

We have one of these guys in the woods behind our house. Appears to be similar

Good thought, but according to what I've read, the bird in this thread is not a Cooper's hawk. Cooper's are not as stocky, have a longer tail, and have a darker "cap" that contrasts with a lighter neck region (among other characteristics).

nickinga also brings up a good option with broad-winged hawk, but it seems this bird matches up best with red-shouldered hawk based on what I've seen. I, however, am no expert.

Default Broad-Winged Hawk

We live over in Dunwoody in a yard covered completely by hardwoods. We identified a short, stocky hawk as a broad-winged hawk. Check out: http://www.hawkmountain.org/raptorpe...ge.aspx?id=655
