Cooper’s Hawk

Accipiter cooperii

Status: Unconfirmed

Origins: Breeds across southern Canada (west of the Atlantic provinces) and the United States.

Record Details:  The lack of photos or specimens, and the extreme similarity to other more expected accipiter species, make all reports to date difficult to confirm. One previously record based on a report by a prominent and experienced birder in St. John’s on January 28, 1979 was removed from the official checklist in 2016 due to lack of documentation.
