Harris's v. Cooper's

Mark writes:

For the first time in eight years of birding Sabino Dam, we saw a Harris's hawk perched in the riparian area (2/14/2015). This beauty was on the snag between the dam structure and the Cooper’s hawk nest tree. It was closely shadowed by two adult Cooper’s hawks. After after a tense stand-off one Cooper’s hawk dove at the Harris hawk letting out a raucous KACK-KACK-KACK and chased it off.

  1. There are several that live behind the Fenster School. I have been there about 10 times, and they were there every single time!
