Backyard Cooper's Hawks; Snowy Owl Utube link

The Brooklyn Bird Club received a few inquiries to identify /confirm a hawk species seen in a few Brooklyn backyards this week. One was a juvenile Coopers Hawk south of Prospect Park; today's email I looked at is from the Carroll Gardens section, with a photo taken by Oona Stern . It's a really nice photo:

Given this winter's Snowy Owl irruption, I couldn't resist inserting this link from Cornell's Ornithological website. Its such a terrific and beautiful slide /video from Utube.Hopefully , you could get one out there somewhere this winter.

Copy and paste the link!
