There was another hawk calling from somewhere nearby when I took these photos, likely the adult female. At first I thought the hawk was a Merlin, but Merlin do not breed as far south as Florida. After looking at the photos, it seemed most likely that this guy is a Cooper’s (Although he may also be a sharp-shinned hawk). I’ve read that it can be difficult to distinguish between the two, but either way, it was cool to watch this swift hawk soaring back and forth with twigs to build a nest. In the photo above he was picking up a twig that he flew over to the nest, and in the last photo below he was heading out for more building supplies.
