Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #36

Week #36 challenge was all about the Hawks.

Disclaimer: If anyone has an issue with me using their photos in the round ups, please kindly let me know. I haven’t had anyone say anything, but I don’t want you to think I’m using your photographs for personal gain. I’m here to show what great work you are doing with your photography by showing you off in these posts.

Week #36 of Bird Weekly proved to be a difficult week showcasing hawks. One of the hardest hawks to identify is the Cooper’s Hawk vs. the Sharp-shinned Hawk. They look the same, however the Sharp-shinned Hawk is 11 inches (28 cm) and the Cooper’s Hawk is 16.5 inches (42 cm). Size matters when identifying these two particular birds.

I encourage you to visit these blogs if you haven’t already and see what amazing things they have going on. If I missed your post or there was a problem with a pingback, please let me know and I will be glad to add you to the list. Remember to pingback from my post of that week and not my page. Liking my page is encouraged!

Next up: Week #37: Birds with White Feathers.


I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
