Report from Leslie and Mike at the nest:
On the way home, we dropped by the Red-tail nest. We got there a little after 5 pm and stood by the corner of the parking lot. It was very quiet. Finally, I saw the one eyah sitting very still in the nest. I wondered if it was ok. Then, the screaming started. The male showed up with a rat, which he dropped in the nest. All of a sudden the other two eyahs appeared. While the one in the nest ate, the other two kept us entertained. One was behind us, on a low branch of the evergreen. Then, it flew into the nest. Next, one of the birds flew into the top of the evergreen behind us, and looked like it was posing for a pic. We saw the female flying near the cranes, and the young cried until she disappeared around the building. What a wonderful way to celebrate Canada Day.
