Sharp-shinned Hawk - Wed. Wings




This Hawks pretty wingspan in the morning sunshine caught my eye off the back deck.Our area has a lot of Quail and Dove so he/she was most likely hunting the next meal.Identifying Hawks has always been difficult for me as they change so much from juvenile to adult during their first years. I have labeled this as a Sharp-shinned Hawk as the size of this hawk appeared to be smaller than a Cooper's. 

As always, I appreciate the birding expertise and comments from my friends :)  

Prescott, Az.

Sweet bird. I feel like I don't see nearly enough of them in Phoenix.
