    That’s a hawk. Looks like a young Cooper’s or Red-Tailed Hawk. Not an osprey.

  2. That is not a osprey.It looks like a hawk,maybe a broad-winged hawk.I am not familiar with the Hawks at Cape cod.

  3. Texas Bird Family says:

    That’s not an osprey, I think it’s a young Cooper’s hawk. It looks just like the pictures of young Cooper’s hawks in eBird. I saw a young cooper’s hawk in our Oak tree and it looked just like that one.

    Looks like an immature Cooper’s hawk.

    Agree.. I really didn’t know what it was. A hawk makes much more sense…thanks!

  6. Definitely not a osprey.Looks like a broad-winged hawk,I really don’t think it is a cooper’s hawk.

      Well, Cooper’s hawks have longer tails than Broad-Winged Hawks, and this one has a pretty long tail. I believe that it is an immature Cooper’s hawk.

        I agree. I saw a young Cooper’s Hawk in our Oak tree. It looked just like the hawk in our tree. It is a young Cooper’s Hawk. It looks exactly like the pictures on eBird

    I saw an all-white leucistic Red-Tailed Hawk yesterday. I’ve never seen a leucistic raptor before. Only sparrows. It was all white. It had a peach underwing.
