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.

Male brings home dinner, Female on the construction site, all three on nest June 26, 2009 (double click photos to enlarge)

Scary face. All three were crying when I arrived. Food Food.

Male bringing in a small supper. He is beautiful

The two mischief maker. They are constantly biting each other

All three in the nest. 2 on the branch, tail in the nest

Carol and I went to visit the nest tonight at 6pm. Was hoping Carol would see at least one flying and she was not disappointed.
On arrival all three were in the nest. Female was on the construction site baloney watching over the eyas. One eyas decided to fly across to the woods. Had a tough landing but was fine. Other two stayed in the nest. When we went over to look at the eyas in the woods Carol noticed a hawk on the light stand. I walked under it (as we were facing directly in the sun) to see the male red tail with dinner in his talons. He flew into the nest dropped off the package and flew off to the east.
We walked past the eyas in the woods and could hear him crying but he was sitting safely on a branch.
