How did I miss this before... I LOVE RAPTORS. Fantastic to share this Julie! Thank you.
I have a Cooper's Hawk nesting near my house eating many a pigeon in my yard. I posted a photo when she was immature, but I have gotten some great ones of her all grown up now. There is a great lady who lives in another part of my neighborhood who has a nesting pair of Red-Tailed Hawks living in a white pine tree next to her house. I have been watching them build their nest this week
