    Life on the gradient from 10,000 to 12,000 MSL: aspen, Dusky Grouse, Peregrine Falcons, Flickers and Clark's Nutcrackers. Like aspen leaves, aspen bark can photosynthesize; hence the green-white…

      In the mountain valley north of Lake Peak, a pair of peregrine falcons joust under a growing thunderhead. The video is manually (mis)focused and shaky. I'm just happy they were occasionally…

        One of the adults looks on while the young Cooper's Hawks practice maneuvering. Watching them negotiate power lines and tree branches, it's easy to see why so many of these birds end…

            The five young Cooper's Hawks are venturing out from their nest, flying short distances within their tree. A neighbor said one had been on the ground yesterday evening, trying hard to get back…

                  A pair of Cooper's hawks has been nesting in my neighborhood. I'm taking notes :) Here are a few shots of the male refueling himself in between trips to supply the nest. [taxonomy:binomial=accipiter…
