Many fledgling and young juvenile birds of many species around  now. Had a 
BB Cuckoo fly into a tree right in front of me for a good look. There  is a 
Broad-winged Hawk being an absolute terror as he defends his territory on  
Kinney Hollow Rd in Union. Saw him stoop on a Red-tail and spar with a 
Cooper's  Hawk. Sent both fleeing.
