Coopers Hawk

Juvenile Cooper's Hawk - K-Lot Hawk Watch, Sandy Hook National Seashore (a.k.a. Gateway National Park), Fort Hancock, New Jersey


We observed quite a few of these guys from the Hawk Watch with some of them buzzing us almost within arms reach, though I don't advise trying to grab them out of the air. There were however a group of bycyclists on the platform that seemed happy to have their helmits on! :{)
