Bedford, OH, United States
This nest used to be an old round, leafy squirrel nest until the hawks took it over a few years ago. They have successfully raised a few clutches of chicks in that time. This year they only raised one chick. But, it was a cold rainy spring. Most buteo raptor nests I watched had fewer young this year. The Coops, which nest later in the spring, seemed to have more chicks per nest.
