I think they're Coopers. It's nice having them around, but now all the other wildlife seems gone (gray and red squirrels, chipmunks, birds, etc.) Maybe it's just a coincidence, but I fear they're hiding now (or the hawks have eaten them all? :(
We live in the woods with a lot of acreage.
I love birds, but I love other wildlife too. I saw one of the hawks eating something on a branch of a tree by the house. I keep telling them they can eat things, but I just don't want to see it.
Do you think if they've nested here this year, they'll probably nest here again next year, like smaller birds seem to do?
