Found in deciduous forests near clearings and farmlands. The Cooper's Hawk feed mainly on
smaller birds which are chased and taken while in flight. Our young Cooper's Hawk used our
yard as one of it's hunting grounds for most of last Winter. It had easy pickings with all
the targets we were drawing with our feeders.
