Cooper’s Hawk

Scientific: Accipiter cooperii
Norwegian: Trostehauk

The Cooper's Hawk is known for its skillful flying. It is around 15 inches and lives near woodlands. It may live in the area all year. They build their nest in trees, which is built by the male and he cares for feeding the young. The male is much smaller than the female. They eat birds and small mammals. The Cooper's Hawk captures its prey with its feet and kills it by squeezing.  The Sharp-shinned Hawk looks very similar, it is just smaller and has thinner legs.
