Raptors Make Unusual Sounds for Courtship Season

Vern Laux

Ospreys, Red-tailed Hawks, Cooper’s Hawks and Northern Harriers are hard to miss across the Cape and Islands this time of year. On the Weekly Bird Report, Vern Laux remarks on these diurnal raptors. Silent for most of the year, at this season raptors engage in noisy courtship displays and make plenty of interesting sounds.
