It was a lovely Sunday afternoon. One neighbor was giving a shower and guests began arriving at noon. Another neighbor was preparing for a surprise birthday party, putting on the finishing touches. While here in the woods, one of the young Cooper's Hawks was having his own party, finishing off a robin and bragging about it. The 3 siblings had to find ways to distract them from their hunger.
Wet feathers impede speed.
But, he's still hungry, so off again.
These young birds are already impressive to watch in action, and gaining the wiles and strength needed to survive.
