My Beat Writer post is up over at 10,000 Birds. It's about an interesting Cooper's hawk in my neighborhood.
And if you are asking yourself how did I know that the above birds was a Cooper's hawk and not a sharp-shinned (or any other hawk) there's a webinar that you might be interested in! My buddy Clay Taylor from Swarovski Optik and I are guests on Johnathon Robinson's Identify Birds by Sight and Sound webinar. Clay and I will discuss different birding tips (probably argue a bit) and you can ask us questions on identification. It's a fun way to spend a Wednesday night, I think there will even be some sort of giveaway.
