Re: [CALBIRDS] New bird info.
- Jo Ann,
Here's a few Nutmeg Mannikin sites in LA County.
Scroll down until you get to the mannikins.
Your "chicken hawk" could be a Cooper's Hawk, Sharp-shinned Hawk or perhaps one of the small falcons, all predators of small birds.
North Hills, Ca.

>Hi everyone, a bit over my head but what great info. Just looked both birds up, if I do see a nutmeg manikin I will let you know. Have what I believe is a "chicken hawk" huge and fast going after all the little birds in the back yard. Will try to get a photo but he/it comes out of no where. The little hummers are not afraid of him I guess they are too small and fast. I live next to the "Wash" lots of trees and running water.
