Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) - 04Jan2016 and 06Nov2015

The bane of all smaller birds in NC, the Cooper's Hawk is a bird killing machine.  That being said, I can't but help to like them.  The red eyes help to give them a demonic look.

Here is a young bird at Fort Fisher Spit.

This one was near Fort Fisher.

The rounded off tail helps to differentiate it from the similar but smaller Sharp-shinned Hawk.

Here is another one drying off after a rain.
