Birds of prey
I see birds of prey every day.Accipiters, such as coopers and sharpshinned hawks roam my back yard looking for squirrels.Accipiters have short,stout wings and long tails for manuevering through thick undergrowth. Buteos,the larger species of hawk with long, broad wings, also live near me.Another awesome raptor,the osprey,lives near my lake.I love watching raptors.A thrill runs through me every time I see one.
Which birds of prey do you see every day?
