Hawk Walk, Tuesday, May 8th

Fred and I were just taking a little walk and this likely juvenile Cooper's Hawk began soaring overhead just a bit west of our house near the woods. Very cool. We got good looks at it and I finally remembered to lift the camera and get a pic.

Brown-headed cowbird in a yard on the way to the red-shouldered hawk nest.

This is the nest. Notice how leafed out it is since we saw it in April. The eggs should hatch any time now. We must have found it almost immediately after they built the nest.

These violets found an interesting place to grow.
