Subject: IBET Cooper's Hawks Roost
80 ft Tulip Tree died in 2012, never cut it down and is a feeding station
for wood peckers of all kinds. This week, finally, has become a roost for
Cooper's hawks up to 6 yesterday and the sight and sounds (some screeching)
are amazing.

They like the sight lines and frolic down toward the bee hive. I thought
it was a mating ritual but when everyone else showed up, it appeared as
happy playfulness !
