Hawk & Scenes From Monomoy

The other day, I spotted this hawk down near the cricks eating a duck. It was very small and had yellow legs. It looked like a Red-Tailed Hawk but it was about half the size. Does anyone know what kind of hawk it is?

I say you have a juvenile Cooper's Hawk there, but what do I know? Maybe ask Kenny B.

I think you may be exactly right. It looks to be a Cooper's Hawk.

I'd say sharp-shinned Hawk eating the left-overs from a Peregrine kill. Also, those "geese" look like Brant.

Blair, you sure about that hawk being a Sharp-Shinned? Also, they are geese. I heard them honking. Enlarge the picture for a better look.
