Banding Hawks Today
I thought you might be interested in these shots of banding hawks. Presenting the Cooper's Hawk for World Bird Wednesday, Nature Notes Wednesday, Outdoor World Wednesday and Tuesdays Tweets and Rural Journal Thursday . I wanted to let you know that the baby hawks were placed safely back in the nest after a few minutes by the arborist and the parents resumed the normal tasks of parenthood. (after a little bit of screeching). Some of the banded hawks have been spotted as far away as California, Nevada and Washington. I think they are so cute! I will put up an adult picture of a Cooper's Hawk in another one of my posts. Hello to all my fellow bloggers on these wonderful memes.
