Abstract: Nest predation by Cooper’s Hawks ( Accipiter cooperii ) is rarely observed and has largely been inferred from prey deliveries or bird remains found at hawk nests. Here I describe two independent observations of breeding male Cooper’s Hawks raiding nests of American Robin ( Turdus migratorius ) on southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Key words: nest predation, Cooper’s Hawk, Accipiter cooperii, American Robin, Turdus migratorius, Vancouver Island
