With Eakins Oval being off limits because of some giant sportsball event I'm entertaining myself with two nesting pairs of Cooper's Hawks. They're the closest we get to Goshawks in this part of the world. The tiny males live precariously insofar as they are as likely to end up as breakfast as mates for the much larger females (one KIA male in the Warbler Wood this season.)

Thanks, all. They're tough subjects because they're not exactly docile birds, even around the nest, and getting any sort of clear shot always feels like a minor miracle. But if even one of the nests succeeds we'll have some less flighty fledglings to enjoy in late June/early July.

You positioned that branch perfectly in the first one and the entire bird being in the clear is a real treat for the eyes.

Very nice.
Beautifully framed by the branch in the first, my pick.
Beautiful yellow light splashed on the branches in the second.
