[365] The mean clutch initiation, in 57 clutches from North Dakota was mid-May and, though pairs arrive more than a month before that, the mean dates are consistently 2–3 weeks later in nests at other similar latitude in British Columbia and Wisconsin. [410] Cooper's hawks, along with great horned owls, had the greatest seroprevalence of Avipoxvirus among several raptorial birds in Illinois. Bosakowski, T., Smith, D. G., & Speiser, R. (1992). [119] The Cooper's hawk's threat display appears to consist of them lowering their heads, raising their "crest" (capital tract), stretching out their wings, spreading the tail and engaging in vocalizations. It's very liberating. Sterner, M. C., & Espinosa, R. H. (1988). [304] The only confirmed accipitrid that Cooper's hawk have been known to prey upon is their smaller cousins, the sharp-shinned hawks. [5] During migration they favor mountain ridges and coastlines, which coincide with migratory raptors routes in general. Hey bat-brain, I was a kid when I killed your parents. chicken farms, feedlots, bird feeders, etc. (2007). [7][362] Data shows that mean egg laying times in Wisconsin may be shifting earlier by up to 4–5 days in different years, but the current mean is 1.3 days. [33] South-facing nests are thought to be avoided, possibly due to solar irradiance reducing soil moisture, tree density and shading or possibly due to the more deciduous local nature of north-facing nest sites. & Nyhof, M.A. [50], Data in Wisconsin shows that pairs line up in correspondence with their size, i.e. (1990). [5][188][179] Cooper's hawks are considered a potential predator of the smaller species of weasel and were recorded in Florida to kill a striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis) kit estimated to weigh about 661 g (1.457 lb). [2] This species tends to be active earlier in the morning than sharp-shinned hawks and Eurasian sparrowhawks (Accipiter nisus) and is generally much more likely to be active in the morning than in the afternoon. When he learned about Vicki Vale, the Joker fell in love with her and tried to steal her from Bruce Wayne. [47][188][179][217][218] The response of woodpeckers to a sighted Cooper's hawks varies, with evidence showing that downy woodpecker and flickers would behave more boldly and themselves may scold the hawk if part of a mixed flock but, if alone, the woodpecker will typically try to flee. Other medium-sized to largish-bodied families of passerines tend to be most often selected. [96] Another study found 13.7% and 10.7% of daylight at this later breeding stage to be in flight, the rest of time perching, with occasional inactive perching spells of around 15–40 minutes. [48][41][52][54] The hallux claw, the enlarged rear talon featured on nearly all accipitrids, may measure from 17 to 21.7 mm (0.67 to 0.85 in) in males, averaging about 19.2 mm (0.76 in), and from 19.8 to 26.7 mm (0.78 to 1.05 in) in females, averaging about 23.3 mm (0.92 in). Behney, A. C., Boal, C. W., Whitlaw, H. A., & Lucia, D. R. (2012). [398] It was estimated for the species that the mortality rate in the first year of life for these hawk is 71-78% while it about 34-37% in the subsequent years. [401][402][403][404] In Indiana and Illinois, mortality from collisions were somewhat more prevalent in Cooper's hawks than in sharp-shinned hawks but instances of predation on immature sharp-shins were three times more prevalent than predations on immature Cooper's. [294][295] Reportedly, Cooper's hawks will temporarily tolerate and possibly even cooperate with crows when one or the other spots a great horned owl in the daytime, both species appearing to join forces to mob the threatening owl out of the vicinity. The species was named in 1828 by Charles Lucien Bonaparte in honor of his friend and fellow ornithologist, William Cooper. [5] By the third week, she may leave the nest only to take food or to defecate. [179] Chipmunks are often regularly hunted in various regions, though only about one-third of North American chipmunks are known in the prey spectrum. [179] Thirteen-lined ground squirrels (Ictidomys tridecemlineatus) were the second most common prey species in a study from Wisconsin and also important in the diet in North Dakota (where they were the most significant contributor of biomass, constituting 23.4%). [2][64] Adult goshawks also have broad supercilia, pale gray color on the underside and a much darker coloring on the back. Trexel, D. R., Rosenfield, R. N., Bielefeldt, J., & Jacobs, E. A. [270] Strong detection of reptilian prey is known in more western locations, especially farther south. Stout, W. E., Rosenfield, R.N. [429] In Minnesota and Wisconsin, several helminths were recorded and there was one instance of a tissue reaction from Serratospiculum as well as a case was reported of related Serratospiculoides in an injured Cooper's hawk in Yellowstone National Park. & Bielefeldt, J. [5] Meanwhile, the juvenile goshawk is much paler edged above than the smaller Cooper's, including a panel formed along larger wing coverts. [114] Cooper's hawks have a well-developed muscle mass that powers their flight, especially helping with acceleration during hunts and when carrying heavy prey. [106] Despite the success of Cooper's hawks in Tucson, attempts to find breeding activity in Phoenix and Casa Grande were unsuccessful, it is thought that the ambient temperature was too high or beyond thermal tolerance levels. [2] They are also adaptable in all seasons to forested mountainous regions, especially foothills. Gehlbach, F. R., N. Y. Gehlbach, P. Pyle, and M. A. Patten (2017). 3 year or older males were found to have predominantly dark orange (37.3% vs 21.6% of similar age females), red (34.6% vs 3.3% of similar age females) or mid-orange (26.6% vs 55% of similar age females). [2][177] One wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) taken in Florida was cited with a weight of 5,336 g (11.764 lb), which is the size of an adult. [180] In the rural areas outside of Tucson, Gambel's quail (Callipepla gambelii) were found to be the most regularly selected prey species, at 15.2% of 79 prey items. [7][47][280] Widely but somewhat scarcely, red-tailed hawks have been known to prey on Cooper's hawk, while a single instance is known of a Cooper's falling prey to a golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos). Before he was going to escape, he kills Eckhardt after he told him to think about the future. Schafer, L. M., & Washburn, B. E. (2016). Largely, the young are quiet until they leave the nest when they begin their loud, persistent hunger calls. Why is it every time I come for you, someone always gets in the way?Joker to Vicky Vale. 89 Now, I can be theatrical and maybe even a little rough - but one thing I am not is a killer. [7][62] Male home ranges in Tucson (sample size 9) averaged 65.5 ha (162 acres), being smaller than in Wisconsin due to better prey concentrations (doves), however juvenile males in rural Tucson areas covered a home range of 771 ha (1,910 acres). [7][299][320] A Wisconsin study determined 19.3% of nestlings in a Milwaukee study area were from extra-pair couplings and that 34% of all broods included at least 1 extra-pair young. [56][150] Flocking is not typically engaged in by raptors who migrate using powered flight, such as Accipiters, falcons and harriers, but many Buteo hawks do form loose flocks. Boal, C. W., Mannan, R. W., & Hudelson, K. S. (1998). Nenneman, M.P., Murphy, R.K. & Grant, T.A. Given reasonable views, all such species are fairly to extremely different in plumage even in juvenile form. McTaggart-Cowan, I., Cooper, J.M. [58] A still more modulated and raucous version is given during the dawn chorus. [2] This species usually is considered monogamous. [206] In the Black Hills, although prey species were seldom identified, evidence showed that most regularly selected prey were assorted icterids. [7][47][62][174] The flicker was the main prey in northern New Mexico, at 22.5% of 316 prey items, and in southern Wisconsin, at 22% of 77 prey items. Oh, they don't make 'em like they used to! (2017). being larger where living farther north) instead varying in size much more so by longitude. [334] Rather small areas may be defended where hunting occurs near the nest. [207] In the city of Burnaby, when bird feeders began to attract black rats (Rattus rattus), Cooper's hawk's came to locally take significant numbers of both young and adult rats. [5][37] Up to 36% of juvenile feathers may be retained in the second pre-basic molt. Mueller, H. C., Mueller, N. S., Berger, D. D., Allez, G., Robichaud, W., & Kaspar, J. L. (2000). ), while males were more typically devoted to hunting on their regular home range. [2] On perched hawks, the wing-tips tend to appear to cover less than one third of the tail, sometimes seeming to barely cover the covert feathers. [2][7] The siblings often stay within 4 m (13 ft) of each other even after leaving their parents range. [5][177][179][284] Also, the sharp-shinned hawk appears to hunt more so birds that dwell at the canopy level in the woodlands (as opposed to ground to shrub height-dwelling birds) within the forest and prefers to attack in heavier cover than the Cooper's seemingly. [411] A high balance of bacterial flora were found the airways of 10 Cooper's hawks, including many with Salmonella (rarely fatal in hawks but can compromise their condition). [63][65] For the Cooper's hawk, there may be a possible and marginal overlap with the bicolored hawk (Accipiter bicolor) in southern Mexico and Central America. A., & Brooks, D. L. (1998). [5][56][57] The typical call of a Cooper's hawk is a harsh, cackling yelp. [7][293] Due to their threat level, the calls of great horned owls provoke a strong response from Cooper's hawks and banders and researchers usually utilize stimuli of great horned owls to attract a mobbing Cooper's hawks. This could be coincidental as rodent populations are probably driven by acorn production in the year prior to the rodent increases, and many of the birds taken regularly by Cooper's are also partially acorn dependent. [145] Nonetheless, the Cooper's hawk was second only to sharp-shinned hawk as the most frequently recorded species seen migrating at nine major hawkwatchs throughout the western United States (and 1 in Canada) and, unlike the sharp-shinned, has shown a trend of increase in numbers overall in recent decades, despite some declines in numbers at Lipan Point and Bridger Range.

Mannan, R. W., Estes, W. A., & Matter, W. J. [2][296] Data from Hawk Mountain Sanctuary shows that the Cooper's hawks has recovered from DDT more gradually than the sharp-shinned hawk here. [33] Down first becomes deep and fluffy around two weeks, the following week first feathers among dense down, feather production accelerates but growth slows in the fourth week after which both increase for the fifth week. (1996). Meehan, T. D., Rosenfield, R. N., Atudorei, V. N., Bielefeldt, J., Rosenfield, L. J., Stewart, A. C., Stout, W.E. [362][372] In southern Illinois, the mean clutch size is 4.1. [242][243] Even more impressive accounts show adult common pheasant estimated to weigh up to 1,158 g (2.553 lb) can be preyed upon by Cooper's hawks. [8][179][187] Beyond the common robin, nearly all thrushes in North America (excluding one species whose breeding range is largely north of the Cooper's range and one rare, little-studied species) are opportunistically hunted by Cooper's hawks. [1][2] In winter they range regularly throughout the parts of the southern United States where they do not breed, such as all Gulf Coast areas and in south Florida. Wrobel, E. R., Wilcoxen, T. E., Nuzzo, J. T., & Seitz, J. According to a tie-in book, the money that Joker threw into the crowd at the parade was counterfeit. Dunne, P., Sibley, D., & Sutton, C. (1988). [196] Numerous other corvids may be hunted, including most overlapping jays, as well as the Clark's nutcracker (Nucifraga columbiana), black-billed magpie (Pica hudsonius), possibly yellow-billed magpie (Pica nuttalli) and a few species of crow. Although there is some margin of error, within a given region dimensions of the two sexes never overlap in these regards (but may overlap marginally in tarsal and tail lengths). In the raptor guild within southern Michigan, the overall food breadth and size was studied against red-tailed hawks, red-shouldered hawks and American kestrels. Zanette, L., Smith, J. N., Oort, H. V., & Clinchy, M. (2003). Vandevere | Neils Skellig | Pink Elephants | Rufus Sorghum. [5][7] Eggs may be discarded by the mother after hatching but those that never hatch are left in place. Despite the temporal differences of their activity, the intensive hunting methods of Cooper's hawks may allow them to access roosting owls more readily than other types of hawks. The male grabs at bark like prey, while the female, if participating, may tear off bark with her bill; the piles of bark may be up to 3 inches deep by the time eggs are laid, though green spray is added considerably less often than other species of hawks such as Buteo. He coined the binomial name Falco cooperii. Campbell, R. W., Dawe, N.K. [222] In the more rural north Florida, again the mourning dove leads the prey selection, accounting for 16.5% of 1100 prey items. [42][343][354][355] Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) were preferred in eastern Oregon (53% of 15 nests) as well as in New Mexico. Cooper's hawk (Accipiter cooperii) is a medium-sized hawk native to the North American continent and found from southern Canada to Mexico. Before Jack Nicholson was cast as Jack Napier/The Joker, Brad Dourif, Tim Curry, the late David Bowie, John Lithgow, Crispin Glover, Willem Dafoe, James Woods, the late Robin Williams, and Daniel Stern were all considered for the role of Jack Napier/The Joker, but turned down the role. These birds had faded back color and lacking strong barring on the tail. Most prey deliveries are intercepted by the female slightly away from the nest. [388] Despite the considerable number of breeding young females, in Oregon, they averaged about 1 egg smaller and nearly a fledgling smaller than their older female counterparts; while results in Albuquerque were even more skewed towards breeding success for older females. [5][7][266] Findings were that in Carlsbad Caverns that Cooper's (and also sharp-shinned) hawks were the most efficient avian predators of bats near the cave entrance (rating as more successful than most Buteo hawks and particularly more so than larger and less agile raptors like red-tailed hawks and large owls). [7] Stress levels, as indicated by a study of corticosterone levels, were considered quite high when hawks are being handled by researchers, particularly in males (indicating that they experience higher levels of stress than females). [5] When soaring, these hawks do so on flattish or, more commonly, slightly raised wings, with fairly straight leading edges. [121][122][123], Like a majority of diurnal birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere, the Cooper's hawk is a partial migrant. Deem, S. L., Terrell, S. P., & Forrester, D. J. [84] The oldest recorded breeding bird was a 12-year-old female in British Columbia while the oldest recorded wild bird was 20 years, 5 months old, banded in migration. (2009). & Wills T. (2016). [385] Attempts to average mean dispersal distances within another study found farther than expected dispersal distances for Cooper's hawks from across the range. Proudfoot, G. B., & Gibson, C.
