Hey Roy et al, Cooper's Hawk on nesting territory is cool! Your list reminded me of the wonderful mnemonic that Bryan Pfeiffer or Everett Marshall shared (sorry, guys, I can't remember which one), but I do know it's attributed to Brett Engstrom, for the Brown Creeper song: "Cra-zee for Cocao Puffs" sol-mi-la-sol-sol-mi It's not quite spot on, but awful darn close!
