The Cooper's Hawks have fledged. The babies are two girls: the size of crows. That's why Mom, who usually feeds on song birds, has been taking squirrels and rabbits from our yards to raise these glorious hunters. On Thursday Mom abandoned them! Amid four yards, all with bird feeders. If you can't get lucky there, hmmm.
And before you think your bloomers are beautiful think about taking your first flight from a 50' tree!
