Two juvenile Cooper's hawks fledged a few days ago and today were never visited by a parent. They are strong enough to fly between 4 trees and cry incessantly for food. I read parents continue to feed their young for weeks after fledging and can't imagine why both parents would be gone for a full day. I checked on them almost every hour from 7am to 8pm and they were squawking everytime. I put 1/2 frozen raw chicken in the crotch of a tree they were in and of course they just looked at it. Any advice? I already left a message for wildlife rehaber, Lloyd Brown.
