Dec 12 - I again had a brief sighting of an adult Coopers today, flying overhead a couple of streets north of the park.

Dec 16 - on my way back from xmas bird count, I had a brief sighting of an adult around 5pm a couple of blocks S of the park flying across the road between some industrial buildings, maybe looking for pigeons.

Dec 25 - around 11am I spotted a Coopers roosting on a light standard beside the road about 50m N of the church (a main block N of the park). It was interesting that a northern (abieticola) RT that has been around for a few weeks now was also roosting on top of the church at the same time.

This is an article on a possible Coopers hawk-northern goshawk hybrid.

Feb 4 - today at noon I had my first sighting in a while, of an adult Coopers up on top of the church, present for perhaps 10-15min.
