    Equipment Note

NOTES: (Breeding Status: Territorial paired. Gen. Climate: Arid. Cover Density: Medium.) Refer to RRN (80)124 for an explanation of the confrontation between the Cooper's hawk and Red-shafted Flicker. I think it was a female lhawk and when she flew off from the Flicker tree, I followed her to where she perched about 50 m. from her nest. The male hawk helps provide the food, but it is the female who brings the prey to the young in the nest. The calls that are recorded are to direct the male to where she is waiting for "breakfast." Although I stayed around a half hour, the male did not come to the female. By then she moved away.
[Note: On this cut the interaction between the Cooper's Hawk and the Flicker is continued without a break from LNS catalog #25166, Colaptes auratus cut #44.]
