Neighbor Finds Beautiful Hawk Fallen Out Of Nest In Park

The Laurelhurst Blog received this email from a neighbor on the 3800 block of 46th Avenue NE:
Sadly, a dead baby hawk was found in Laurelhurst Park on Sunday morning in the grass under a tree where apparently there was a nest up above.   The baby hawk was found on the NE side of the park near the fire pit.   
PAWS Wildlife said it appeared to be either a Coopers Hawk or a Sharp-shinned Hawk and suggested I take the specimen to the Burke Museum so the ornithologists there could do something meaningful with it.   
It is a beautiful bird.  Summer is breeding season for Coopers Hawks.
