DEADLY YARD BIRD

My birding friend, Dr. Tom Kuhn, lives in the outer Richmond District in San Francisco.  Nearby is Sutro Heights Park, full of House Finches and other small birds. In Tom’s back garden here is a frequent visitor, young Cooper’s Hawk:tom's cooptom's coop2Tom took these pics.  We do not know who banded this bird, or where.  Some Coops do breed in San Francisco so he could be local…or a migrant.
