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.

Building the nest March 3, 2010

Today there was a lot of activity on the nest. Both hawks were working hard on the nest. The female landed in front of me - broke off a branch then right back into the nest. She was checking out the nest - laying in it, moving a branch, plucking the branches above. Time must be getting close. Notice the full crop (must have just eaten), the extra feathers on the chest and legs for winter. This is one beautiful female hawk.
