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.

Red-Tails Weathered Storm OK April 26, 2009

With winds hitting over 100ks over the last couple of days and having received a call from Carol who was worried about the nest I stopped in today to make sure the red-tailed hawks were ok. Arrived to see the female sitting quietly on the nest and the male soaring around the nest. To the right I noticed two red tails high in the sky. The male let out a cry and went on the chase. He is a beautiful red-tail. The speed is amazing and the cry of danger loud and clear. Watched for a good 10 minutes when I was lucky to see him return. He circled the nest then went to rest on the condos that are being built next door.
