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.

Occassional Sightings of Red Tails July 25, 2009

Spend a couple of hours looking today but I know they will not be back at the nest area - there are birds in the trees and 24 geese under the trees. They are feeling safe enough to come back.
As you can see people are hearing and seeing them. They are around but just not as visible as before.
Here are emails of sighting over the last couple of days.
From Adrian: Thursday July 23, 2009Fred (the youngest fledgling) just flew by screeching his head off. He went over the upper parking lot but I don't know where he went to. He was flying low but steadily. No gliding
Fred flew low over us again and was very vocal. I am looking for him, but can't go far
From Adrian: Friday July 24, 2009I'm in front of the building (opposite the mall) and can hear Fred calling out. Sounds a long way away, maybe over in the direction of the Y.
From Bob: Friday July 24, 2009
I was getting off the 401 today by the Best Buy and Wal Mart and my wife saw two red tails, looking down on the field to the east as one was on a light post and the other near by on an overhead highway sign. We thought it must be the parents hunting.
