Damon S. Calderwood and Richard A. Bold were photographing a Black-headed Grosbeak nest containing 4 babies in a salmonberry patch in mid-June 2020 when it was attacked by a Cooper’s Hawk in north Maple Ridge. They chased the hawk away on 2 occasions. Unfortunately, the larger hawk overfilled the frame as they were set up to photograph the smaller grosbeaks. It’s believed the hawk cleaned out the nest of the young over the next couple of days. They felt sorry for the grosbeaks but then again realized that grosbeaks, both parents and young, are part of the food chain for hawks.
