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 so big. June 11 2009

Notice the change in the wings - the colouring and size

The chest is getting more rusty coloured

Again look closely at the tail feathers and the size of the legs and wings

I saw both male and female flying today as well as the male bringing home lunch. The female was in the nest today and jumping from the nest to the branch and to another branch. It is time for the eyas to start doing this and I watched thinking she was teaching them how to do this. AMAZING.
I took some photos today of one eyas. Front and back so you can see the difference in the wings, colouring and tail feathers. Truly beautiful.
