A visit with the Cooper’s

It was a beautiful morning with bright blue skies for a change, so I brought my camera along on my walk to campus, and it paid off handsomely on my way back home. There’s a pair of Cooper’s hawks with a nest high up in an oak tree a bit off the Oak Leaf Trail near the end of Hartford Ave, and late this morning, someone came home from a successful hunt. There was a bit of flying back and forth from the nest to a nice low branch, and I could never capture an image showing the both of them at the same time, but here are some of the highlights.

Meanwhile, back in Estabrook, the third pair of geese appear to be making a go of it again on the east side of the pond. We’ll see if it’s for real soon enough. The other two geese were safely on their nests on opposite ends of the island.

Lastly, tragedy has befallen the third, southern-most robins’ nest we know about, and those are all the words I can manage at this time.
