Nesting Time

Last year I watched the very short childhood of three baby Cooper’s Hawks

Two Weeks Of Growth Of The Chicks | The Deplorable Climate Science Blog

They are back at the nest. Not sure if this is one of last year’s chicks or one of the parents, but I met up with him at dinner time. The face and gaze looks very similar to the top baby picture above.

Same bird?

    Jeez Tony! I like your straightforward climate analysis but you are a damn great photographer! I spent three years in Chile for work and took lots of great photos but I must admit I’m envious of your portfolio….. Cheers, Mike

    According to the resource Cooper Hawks generally reach sexual maturity and nest at 2 years of age but can do so in 1.

    I looked it up because just from general reading about various hawk species it seemed to me that most did not reach sexual maturity until the second nesting season after the fledged. But apparently the Coopers Hawks can do so in a single year.
