Wildlife: Falcon at My Bird Feeder (Ohio)

This falcon came to visit my birdfeeder. Of course, he wasn't looking for seed but one nice, fat bird. But that's nature, isn't it? He's a beautiful guy. He didn't get a meal that day, by the way.

I think it might be a Coopers or Sharp-shinned Hawk instead of a falcon. Here, the Coopers usually favor larger birds such as doves, and Sharpies try to catch smaller birds like Goldfinches and Sparrows.

Donna60 - you know, I thought it was a hawk, but my roommate was so sure it was a falcon, I decided to trust his judgement over mine. Thank you for the information.

Barb, I believe you were right. The bird looks more like a hawk than a falcon. We used to have many of both in north Florida, but not so many nowadays.

Thanks for sharing the photo anyway. Either bird is a treat to see.

I thought it was a hawk also, but either way he's a smart bird-knows where to find an easy meal!
