The Red-tailed Hawk family has succeed in having two eyas. Very hard to see them but I can hear them and see them flapping around high in the nest.

Male and Female on Nest March 31, 2009

Today I saw both the female and male on the nest. It appeared that the male was bringing in food for the female. The female was on the nest most of the day - moving sticks around.
At one point while watching - the female was on the nest and we were wondering where the male was - out of the sky from the top of the building he comes flying in feet first to make a landing on the nest. The wind was really bad today so you could see he was working hard at the landing.
Noticed on my way in to work that there were two Cooper's Hawks at the south east corner of the wood lot. Will need to look to see if they are also building a nest there.
Both photos were taken from the 5th floor window. So quality is quite poor.
