Over the past few weeks I’ve been seeing at least two different Cooper’s Hawks in the city with some regularity.
I’ve spotted a juvenile, above, hunting in Pulaski Park and perched atop the Canal Gallery on Dwight Street.
There’s also an adult male that I haven’t managed to photograph yet. I’ve seen him flying over Hampden Street just downhill from the Stop & Shop, and hanging around out behind the Crocker paper mill by the river.
I’m curious to see whether they’re just passing through, or if they’ll be permanent residents around town.
