Urban and Nuisance Wildlife
Protected Birds
Raptors

Swainson's hawks and red-tailed hawks often nest in urban and suburban areas with large trees. The adults can be very aggressive during the nesting period when they are defending their nest and nestlings. Adult birds may stoop on people and pets when they approach the nest tree. This aggression only occurs during a short time period so patience and avoiding the vicinity of the nest are the best alternatives.
