The text overviews, describes, and discusses the various aspects of the natural history of breeding Cooper’s Hawks. Where and when do they nest, what does this raptor eat, what are this raptor’s courtship behaviors, how many young to they raise, and how are different breeding populations adapting to urbanization and climate change? I particularly highlight the import of natural history to science, conservation ecology, and society overall – noting that natural history is the foundational pillar of biology and the primary means by which the general public connects to nature. This book’s overall purpose likely will function to enhance that connect – using natural history accounts of the most abundant nesting bird of prey in backyards across the breadth of the North American continent.
