There's a nest of Cooper's Hawks at Mead Gardens, and it's fun to see the two young ones out of the nest testing their wings in the tree. On Monday, we saw both adults with their young, and the female was feeding them in the nest. At one point, one of the adults flew so close to me that I was able to get full frame photos of the bird--it's just too bad I couldn't get rid of a mildly cluttered background.
Nice Scott! Cooper's are such sleek-lloking birds. With their long talons and beaks, they also seem especially sinister. Death-by-Copper's Hawk would be a cruel fate.ReplyDelete
Saw them today. Only one adult and one young hawk, who was already flying.ReplyDelete
