This spring, as Sabino Canyon Volunteer Nationalists (SCVN) led elementary school kids on nature walks through the Sabino Canyon riparian area, if we were lucky we would be able to a pair of cooper’s hawks either rebuilding an old nest, taking turns sitting on eggs or bring food to the new chicks. A few days ago, three chicks were observed out on nearby limbs. This past Saturday, I was able to get some photos of the chicks. After getting a couple, an adult brought food to the chicks, after which the adult left the nest, perching on a lower limb near where I was standing — classic right time, right place.
