The Gang of Four (Cooper's Hawks)

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.

These young birds are already impressive to watch in action, and gaining the wiles and strength needed to survive.
