I saw this hawk and shorebird in Victoria. Are they a Cooper's Hawk and Yellowlegs, Greater or Lesser? Thank you,

Hi Bill,

You are correct that is an immature Cooper's Hawk and the shorebird is a Greater Yellowlegs.

Here are 2 helpful articles to help you differentiate between Sharp-shinned Hawks and Cooper's Hawks and between Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs. ... nned-hawk/ ... owlegs.htm
