Just a guess. I think it's a female Cooper's Hawk or possibly a Sharp-Shinned which is smaller than the Cooper. They find bird feeders easy prey.

I'm no expert, but it looks like a Northern Goshawk to me. I'm not even sure if they range this far south, but just my two cents. :)

Are you sure it isn't a Southern Goshawk? We northerners do immigrate periodically.

I do not know what it is but I like the shot.

Looks like a close twin to our Red Tail Hawks in Missouri.

I got the book>Birds of Florida from my neighbors, & looked it up. It's a "Sharp-Shinned Hawk" It does not breed in Florida, but migrate from September-to-April in Florida. Talk about a Real Snow Bird, this is one of them. :laugh: :laugh:
