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.

Red Tails at Work Red Tails at Home August 20, 2009

I was ready to go to work and I can hear the juvenile red tail crying in the tree across the street. What to do. OK so I looked. Couldn't find him because he was in the neighbours yard and it was too early to ask permission to go there. He was crying for a good 15 min and I know exactly were he was.
Got to work to find out I just missed the juvenile red tail attacking the Canada goose in the front yard by 5 minutes (wouldn't you know it). the youngster has been seen on the hydro poles, flying above work and on the cranes at the construction site. So they are close to the office still.
Arrived home to see the juvenile hovering over the house down the road - he was motionless for a good 2 minutes then dove straight down. What a sight. Must have been successful as he didn't come back up in the air.

Man you gotta love this.
