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.

Male Red-Tailed Hawk keeps kestrels away from nest May 7 2010

When I arrived at work today the female was feeding the young. At lunch i went outside to see her feeding the eyas again. The male had just come by the nest when the kestrel again went after the hawks. The male flew around and around getting the kestrel away from the nest. Amazing the little kestrel must have attacked him 8 to 10 times. near the end of the day I peeked at the nest to see a eyas sitting beside the mom. My first true sighting. I tried to take a shot through the window but the rain disorted the shot. Hopefully some shots this weekend.
