Cooper’s Hawk Family Life

  • Adult Cooper's hawk, 22 March (by BrockmeyerPhoto)

In 2016 a pair of Cooper’s hawks built a nest outside Chris and Tom Brockmeyer’s window in the City of Pittsburgh.

Over the spring and summer, Chris and Tom documented the nesting season in photographs.  Often the hawks were only 25 yards away.
