25 July 2022
This April Charity Kheshgi and also I saw Cooper’s hawks nesting in Frick Park and also questioned when their young would certainly fledge. In “ Cooper’s Hawk Nesting Questions” I ended the young would zip June 22-26 at the most recent. They were also behind that since …
This month we looked at their development every couple of days. On 3 July both had 4 prospering young people that were strolling on branches and also making brief jumps. (Not fledged yet?) By 8 July the young might fly however they declined to leave the area of the nest.
All 4 were still there on 14 July, flying well and also pleading near the nest. “Feed me!” Their dad baby-sat, above, while their mom was out searching. The young were really sharp, specifically when they saw “mommy” returning.
July 14th was the last time we saw all 6 member of the family with each other. 5 days later on they had actually spread. The Cooper’s hawk family members had actually matured.
