Please do not approach the nest too closely in search of a better view or picture. If the female stares at you or gives a kek-kek-kek alarm call, please BACK OFF! This is a very rare event. The banded male is 1 year old and still in juvenile plumage. One year old males almost never nest. The leading Cooper's Hawk researcher Bob Rosenfield published a 32 year data set of 732 nesting pairs, with only 13 one year old males. So do help him succeed. Thank you!
