While cleaning up the yard yesterday, I found a dead cooper's hawk under our forsythia bushes (my grandson had reported a big bird hunting sparrows a while back). Heavily horizontally streaked breast, rounded tail. One would have thought that the English sparrow population would have kept it well fed. I assume it wasn't in fine fettle, or it wouldn't have been quite so close to a house.
