- Watching Backyard Birds
The Cooper's hawk takes center stage in this issue of WBB. A native of dense forest, this species has adapted to our tree-filled suburban environment with remarkable ease. Editor Dawn Hewitt conducts a pseudo-scientific experiment to see which of her hummingbird feeders attracts the fewest bees. Also, the privilege of watching young hummingbirds embark on their life journey in her southern Arizona yard has helped contributor Marion Ball overcome the worries and concerns of the pandemic. Find all this and more in our August 2020 issue!
