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.

2 Fledglings Crying for Mom - She was high on the construction site July 7, 2009

Youngest and oldest fledgling - Have you seen mom

2 older fledgling playing on the branch - you can just see the twig in the ones mouth

Stopped in for a while today and saw all 3 fledglings. All 3 fledglings were in a tree and underneath them were 2 ground hogs (mom and a baby). Now that is a sight you don't see often. The youngest looks good and the other two were playing as usual. Just before I left the youngest flew to a tree by the building and one the older fledgling joined him. They were crying and crying into the sky and sure enough I looked up and there was the female high on the building top. Amazing.
One of the fledgling was also breaking branches today and carrying them when flying. Very cool - just like mom.
