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.

The Juveniles have moved - July 4, 2010

Janice and I went by the nest of the Red-Tailed Hawks. Leslie, Mike and their friends were also there. For quite some time I could not find them or hear them. Normally within minutes you see one in the tree, or you hear them. Today we split up in groups and went to look. Finally we heard one in the distance and landed at the Centre to thrill Leslie's friends and Janice. The flight of the red-tail juveniles distance is 4 times larger than yesterday as well as the height of flight is to the top of the condos. The most important details is the call has changed - it is a mix of baby and adult. Totally amazing.

Thank you again. Yes the change is very exciting and yet I know that I will see them less and less. The call was awesome. I got hooked on hawks because of the red tail call.
You noticed the little bug beside him. I was hoping someone would.
