Hey tweets, I want to thank Ed for his message about taking care when it comes to observing our nesting hawks. To my knowledge, this is the first time we have ever had nesting Cooper's Hawks of any kind at the Fill. It would be wonderful if this pair succeeded in raising young, and purely awful if they failed on account of human interference. - Connie, Seattle

The banded male is 1 year old and still in juvenile plumage. One year old males almost never nest. The leading Cooper's Hawk researcher Bob Rosenfield published a 32 year data set of 732 nesting pairs, with only 13 one year old males. So do help him succeed. Thank you!
