Found on the ground on hiking trail. Looking a little beat up. We picked it up to get a better look and noticed some tail feathers missing on the one side. We held it a while as we continued our walk along the trail and gave it a little water. What we where not expecting was she was starting to lay an egg. The other pictures show it. The egg came out broken yoke first then the shell. Only minute after the ordeal she had enough strength and flew off. She was still bulging on the bottom and appeared to have more eggs to lay.

Description

Melanistic juvenile (likely male based on size relative to the Great-tailed Grackle it was feeding upon). Verified by William Clark, and Lance and Jill Morrow. First observed by M. Silvas with me, and I shouted "melanistic Cooper's Hawk, OMG" as I identified the bird preliminarily, before submitting it to experts for review.

Experts - What is going on here? This male American Kestrel sure did seem to have the hots for this female Merlin. He kept trying to get close to her and even brought her a few treats (insects?) from the grass beneath the fence. She accepted the treats but didn't seem thrilled with the attention. However, when he flew off, she followed him...
