Red-tailed Hawk Nest Update

The most recent nest check confirmed that there are two red-tailed hawk nestlings in the nest previously mentioned on this blog. Long periods of time go by with the female perched nearby, but not in, the nest, awaiting food delivery from her mate. A rough estimate is that the chicks are about two weeks old, giving us another month to enjoy watching them in their nest.

    This photo brought to mind the long, lovely period of spring green to which we’ve been treated this year. Would the seemingly slow period of leaf-out contribute to this wonderfully clear view of the nestlings?
