Cooper's Hawks

Cooper's Hawks are elusive hawks that love the heavily wooded canyon on the Red Car Property. Neighbors often report seeing them flying among the trees. I've never been able to get a good photo of one.

Check out a terrific photo of a Cooper's Hawk visiting an Echo Park backyard pond on The Eastsider.
