Female feeds eyas 2twice in hour and a half. May 29, 2010

Janice and I went to see the red tails. We were very lucky to see the female bring in food twice. Highlights were watching female bring in a rat and feed all 3 eyas, then they turned backwards to whitewash the trees. The eyas were fighting over the food and could be heard crying for more food all morning.
Lots of practice flapping of wings - a couple of times it was very scary as they went up and out. Poor Janice cryed out a couple of times thinking the little eyas were going to fly right out of the nest lol.

Hot on the Red-Tail Nest today - Mom with newspaper May 27, 2010

Today the poor eyas were so hot today. They were sitting on the edge of the nest with wings stretched out. You could even see them panting.
I had to laugh when I looked at the photos and saw the newspaper under the female Red-Tailed Hawk. I wonder what article she was reading.

Check out the newspaper!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Female taking a break

Today I was showing one the staff on the 5th floor where the nest was when the male landed on the nest. He had lunch for everyone. So all 4 were seen at the same time. Male flew out of the nest and sat in the tree across the street.
Female and 2 eyas

Notice the tilt of the head of one of the eyas

Red-Tailed Hawks all seen - 2 adults and 2 eyas.May 23, 2010

A great day at the nest with Graham (who enjoyed the hawks last year with me) and Pat and Nancy on their first visit (and hopefully will become regulars).
The hawks gave us a great sighting. Female on nest feeding the 2 eyas, dad on the government building doing NOTHING, lots of flapping and sitting on the edge of the nest. Also in the distance 2 Turkey Vultures were seen.
Also one special photo for Chris our newest collection of pooparazi shots.

Amazing how large the eyas are getting

Notice the one on the right is high on his legs - he was standing straight up. Very weird.

For Chris

The fight was taking place high in the sky. The shots are the best I could do with a 400mm. Double click to enlarge them.

The fight started here Red Tail sitting on condo and Kestrel attacks.
