COOPER'S HAWKS HAVE FLEDGED
There was some concern after the storm on Saturday, which appears to have wiped out the nest of the Cooper's Hawks near the playing oval.
Happily, two fledglings were spotted on Thursday morning, in the fir trees, just north of the Powerhouse. The juveniles were vocalizing quite loudly and flying from tree to tree in the sunny weather.
If you are lucky and patient, you may be able to spot them for yourself the next time you are walking the path between the south parking lot and the two schools.
Great to see another generation of hawks in and around Sam Smith Park. The first of these pics depicts one of our hawks eating their prey.
