Cooper’s Hawks in Dunn’s Woods, again

I saw and heard a pair in Dunn Woods today. There is a nest from last year in a beech tree on the east side of the woods, they may use it, or move to another tree. I am not sure what factors go into their choice year to year but height, light, sounds, and age of the old nest all play a part.
