Nesting Cooper’s Hawks

This year saw our resident pair of Cooper’s Hawks move their nest site from the Time Trail to the Nature Park parking lot.  The sound and rumbles of semi-trucks passing their nest 24 hours a day did not appear to faze them.  In mid July, three healthy young hawks left the nest and took time to explore their new world.  They were seen perching in the trees next to the Nature House acting like security guards checking up on park visitors. The three juveniles seem to have spread their wings and left the park, while the adult female can still be seen regularly perching near the bird feeding station behind the Nature House!

One of our regular photographers Henry Wong took some great shots of the young hawks.
