We have a pair of nesting Cooper's Hawk that have been giving our guests a nice show a couple of times a day. The nest is quite high in one of our Aleppo Pines. I'm guessing the tree is about 80 feet high and the nest is at about 65 feet. The tree sits in our courtyard and each day there are twigs all over the brick patio. Oh well.
For the next few days I thought I share some of my favorite Cooper's Hawk photos:

One of the challenges of running a Bed and Breakfast is trying to get out early for birding during the winter months. March is no exception. We have guests every day and so breakfast every day. Last Friday I headed out to Tubac for the Hawk Watch, but just couldn't get there until after 10:30. By that time the hawks had shown themselves and departed. I hung around for about an hour and a half but only saw two hawks -- Cooper's Hawks, which of course nest in our Aleppo Pine Tree on our property. Oh well. Here just as evidence I was there are two "not so good photos."
