A mom Cooper’s Hawk tends its nest with its babies. The nest is approximately 5 m high. Both parents tend the nest. We could get close to the hawk because there were four baby hawks in the nest. We're pretty sure that this mom hawk was telling us that we were not welcome. But we think our distraction was almost nothing compared to the fact that we, human beings have been destroying our environment. We should make an effort to keep our environment clean. This pic was shot in the Twin Cities area, Minnesota on June 21, 2008. Yeah, now, January 2, 2009, the parents and the four chicks are probably in a southern state. ... I wish I could fly like a bird. For more info on Cooper’s Hawk: http://www.audubon.org/bird/BoA/F2_G10b.html  |  Cooper's Hawk, Identification, All About Birds - Cornell Lab of Ornithology    
Believe it or not, some hawks such as Red-Tailed Hawks spend the winter here in Minnesota. Some bald eagles and many kinds of owls winter in Minnesota and Wisconsin as well.
