Got out of my car today at my mother's house in Richardson about 4:00 pm. As I stepped up on the curb a hawk came tumbling down and hit near my feet. DOA. What kind of hawk and what could have killed it? No power lines nearby. Just a big oak. Poisoned rat maybe?

Colors of a Prairie Falcon but seems a little small for one.

Too bad. I like having them around. They keep the squirrels thinned out around my house.

Harris hawks are really cool. I hunted with a cast of 3 out in Abilene at the yearly falconry meet years ago. Very incredible birds is an understatement. Very laid back bird around people.

Another vote for Cooper Hawk. We have one around here and it takes no chit from anything, watched it take on 3 crows and run them off. Also saw it rob a Blue Jays nest and they chased him off.

Dove eating fools too.
