All 5 red-tail (male female and 3 fledglings) see at 1:30pm today. July 5, 2009

Youngest fledgling

Female coming into the nest

All is well at the red tail nest today. Just got back. All 3 fledglings were safely sitting in the tree when I arrived. One in the nest, one by the steps in a tree and one in the middle tree half way up. Again I found them by their crying as mom circled above. The one in the nest eventually flew away and landed on the back of the construction site balcony and was still there when I left. The female was very active today doing alot of soaring around. The male was being chased by a cooper hawk at McCowan and Ellesmere . It was quite low and I had a good look at the cooper hawk - male. So overall looks good today.
