South Florida Cooper's Hawk juveniles...
2 months ago

must be more people tolerant than New Mexico Cooper's :-). I found 4 juveniles from a nest that was in a large rubber tree along a golf course fairway in Palm Beach Gardens. They were on their own, no adults to be seen. They would leave early in the morning to go do Cooper's Hawk things, then return in the late afternoon.

ready to go hunting

checking out some small birds on the fairway

When they returned they still had excess energy to burn so, like teenagers, they would chase each other around and engage in mock battles:

Those were fun shows to watch and shoot. Images 1 & 2 were shot with K3+1.4xAW+DA*300, remainder were shot with K3+DA*300, all using TAV mode.
