Cooper Hawk
NAME DERIVATION: The scientific name comes from the Latin word accipere, meaning to take or seize and refers to a hawk or bird of prey, and from the Latinized name of the American zoologist William Cooper, for which the bird was named. The Cooper’s Hawk has also been called Chicken Hawk, Big Blue Darter, Hen Hawk, and Swift Hawk.

Red Tail Hawk: This hawk has been called Buzzard, Buzzard Hawk, Hen Hawk, Mouse Hawk, and Red Hawk.

INTERESTING FACTS:
The Cooper’s Hawk can eat an amount of food equivalent to 12% of the bird’s body weight in one day. This is similar to a 120-pound person eating almost 14 pounds of food or 24 pounds of food if you weigh 200 pounds.

In the fall, the female Cooper’s Hawk migrates south before the male, but in the spring the male’s migration north precedes the female’s migration.

Dave, thanks for the clarification. Strange to me in all my years L have never seen a coopers take a chicken. Have seen redtails take many.

The cooper hawks that we should be concerned about is the Human Cooper Hawks that devastate a man's life work. Those human hawks are the thieves that break into a man's backyard in the darkness of the wee hours to steal irreplaceable lifetime of hard work. That is my take!!

You are right Jay. But the good news is that the USFWS won't come after you for shooting the scumbag hawk. Just got to convince the local sheriff you felt endangered!

Jay - I think that human hawk would be called owl since they hunt at night.
