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-Tailed Hawk watch is now over for 2010

This shot is special as all three were on the same branch. First time I have seen this in two years.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about the SCC Red-Tailed Family.

We will see the hawks occasionally and I encourage you to email you of any sightings.

Miagration hawk watches are getting ready to start and it won't be long before the juvenile Red-Tailed Hawks fly south. If you live in Scarborough join us at the Rosetta McLean Hawk Watch starting in September. You will see many varieties of Hawks (Sharp Shinned Hawk, Cooper Hawks, Red Tailed Hawks, Red Shoulder Hawks, Broadwing Hawks, Merlins, Goshawks, Osprey, Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles and Turkey Vultures.

Lets hope the male and female hawk decide the Scarborough Civic Centre is a great place to nest again. I look forward to posting the 2011 season.

Take care.


This is my favourite shot of the year. Watching the fledged red-tail hawk throw the stone up in the air and then catch it with his foot was very cool.

Amazing picture! I love the Red Tail Hawks, and how much they have taught us and shown us in their lives.

These are fun birds to hunt. I have several nice pelts woven into homemade dream catchers. Have a blessed day!
