Ann Mendoza has Cooper’s Hawks in her backyard. A whole family of them! From the looks of things there are at least five fledglings of various ages documented in these photographs—that’s a big brood! In one of the pictures mom or dad makes an appearance and sends the youngsters scattering!

The hawk on the fence with the slate gray wing and fanned tail is the adult—likely the male.  The others are all juveniles.
