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.

Eyas getting large and testing their wings June 8, 2009

All three eyas were standing on the edge of the nest today. They continued to practice flapping their wings. The one actually got a little air today - and it must have scared him/her because it layed flat down right on the nest afterwards. They are getting so big and the colouring is changing daily now.
This is the week that we expect them to start to branch - that means jumping out of the nest and going to other branches on the tree then back to the nest. It is the first step towards fledging.
When I was watching the youngsters the mom was sitting on the top of the building right behind me.
