The nestlings (now it looks like there are five) are out of the nest, hop-flying around the tree.
A neighbor said that, last night, one of them was down on the ground, trying to get back up the tree. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the one - it was sitting on a lower branch only ~20 ft up.
The past few days the adults (or at least the mother) have been calling differently - long, soft calls.

There are a trio (?) nesting in our neighborhood. Often seen flying between our pine tree and another tree nearby.
Photos taken round 1:30pm, but we hear and see them often anytime between 10am to 6pm
Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) is a medium-sized hawk native to the North American continent and found from Southern Canada to Northern Mexico. As in many birds of prey, the male is smaller than the female. The birds found east of the Mississippi River tend to be larger on average than the birds found to the west.
