Every time I see one of the young red-tailed hawks my heart soars as I know soon they will be gone. One of the young seems to be using the SCC as his hunting ground. He was jumping from tree to public art pieces to hunt for large bugs. I added the poop shot as that also shows he is getting enough to eat.

Oh what a sight it was - soaring around and around the sky and over the SCC. Not a sound was made and THEN we heard the crying in the background. Yes the 2nd noisy juvenile red tail hawk was sitting on the condo behind the SCC 3 balconies from the top screaming for food. So the 2 juveniles did survive. Also I heard from Ken B who I met at the SCC the other night and he saw 3 red tailed hawks flying together by the SCC. Too cool
Female American Kestrel
Male American Kestrel

Juv American Kestel (waiting for confirmation on Juv status)
Adult - the second one flew away before I got there.
I was out looking for the hawks when to my surprise I found a male and female American Kestrel and one juv in the trees at the front of work. Then out of the blue sky came a beautiful hawk and on the roof of the SCC a screaming juv. After looking at the shots they flying hawk was a juv red tail so both are accounted for. YAHOO.

Today I saw one hawk sitting on the light stands and public art pieces. Sighting will become harder each day. They do not cry as much plus they are flying very high and very far away.

I saw both fledgled red-tailed hawks very low today. One walked on the parking lot and was drinking water from a puddle.
