Until last year, a pair of Cooper’s Hawks nested in Live Oak Park, two blocks from my house. The tree where they made their nest died and was removed — no complaint, I understand the danger of having a big dead tree in a popular park — and everyone in the neighborhood was sad that the hawks didn’t just find some other nearby tree. Well, apparently they actually did find some other nearby tree (though nobody seems to know exactly where): last week a neighbor reported two adult hawks and a very young one, flying about the neighborhood. And today, my wife saw them checking out the neighborhood, passing over our house a few times as they seemed to be investigating the nearby blocks. Yay! I will report this to the Cooper’s Hawk project that I blogged about a few months ago.
