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.

Today was amazing with spotting the 3rd eyas. Bernie, Florence and I were also treated to the female giving us a nice flying lesson. She soared around us landing on the elevator (her favourite perch), then went to the penthouse suite, to the top of the crane and the for a bath. At the end of the bath she flew straight towards me and I had to duck. Yes she was that low (very scary when you know on a regular day there are cars and trucks everywhere). She then landed on the tree - tore off some twigs and took them back to the nest. No sign of the male red-tail (told Bernie he was having a nap on the back of the condo). He only comes running when the female screams. Here are a couple of shots from today.a
