cooper’s hawk flew into storm door,can we take it to a taxidermist?

    Yes, absolutely.  Taxidermy can be performed on all vertebrae species including, mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians.

    The process is fairly simple, I guess for a taxidermist anyway.  The bird will be skinned and then either mounted on a mannequin made from wood, wool and wire, or a polyurethane form.

    No, unless you want to be arrested and subject to fines. It is illegal to possess feathers of birds such as Cooper’s hawks, and the entire body would be a huge violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This applies to roadkill, and certainly would apply to the bird you mention.

    This was addressed just a few days ago here on green answers – search.
