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.

Female Brought in Dinner for the 3 Eyas June 9, 2009

All photos taken through the window of the 5th floor. Quality very poor.

The nest is very busy all the time now. I was lucky to look out at the right time to see the female bring home a snack for the 3 eyas. It looked very much like a skunk (it was black and white the size of a squirrel). The 3 babies (which are getting very large) were all around the female and grabbing the food from her mouth. They could hardly wait.
During my break I looked out again and there came in dad with more food. He landed in the nest dropped it off and flew out again. This time it was a gull.
The young ones very seldom rest - they are constantly flapping and moving about. I very seldom see the adults in the nest unless they are feeding. If the weather is bad the female will go into the nest.
