I have heard it said that Sharp-shinned Hawks tend to perch closer to the
trunks of trees while Cooper's Hawks tend to perch further out on the
outer branches. I've noticed this up North when I used to live there but
I've not really seen this phenomenon down here. Can anyone corroborate
this behavior in these accipiters in Florida?
