I believe this to be a Coopers Hawk. Fortunate to get this shot of him taking off.

Robert, this is a great shot of the hawk taking off. Really nice job. Have a great week, Bill

Hello Robert,
Capturing a hawk while in-flight is no easy task, great job!!
It sure looks like a Coopers to me. They can be a real terror to the birds visiting your backyard feeders. I used to raise pigeons and lost quite a few to these quick flying predators.
PS. I did a work shop image on this photo. Hope you don't mind.

wonderful timing. good sharpness and lighting. perfect bird photography

Hi Robert.
I don't think you could have captured a better action shot. I didn't realize how curved their wings were. A very good portrait to show it off. TFS Trevor

Very dramatic shot. Its great to be able to see the spread of wing feathers so clearly
