Strange sight in Washington Park

zach schwartz-weinstein

I'm watching an immature Cooper's hawk repeatedly carry nesting material to an old nest that was used by merlins last year.  I've heard of immature coops
mating with adults before, but it's odd to see an immature bird carrying nesting material.  It also seems pretty late in the season, but I don't know much about Cooper's nesting behavior.
