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.

New Toy - Tim Horton's Cup July 3, 2010

What a great day - Peter, Bernie and Florence came to the nest and enjoyed watching the antics of the juvenile hawks. The last thing we saw was the hawk picking up a Tim Hortons cup, throwing the cup and trying to catch it. Again learning new hunting skills.
Not great shots but just have to post them.

In Flight with the Hawks July 3, 2010

the juvenile red-tailed hawks were flying all over the place. They are still flying very low. Today a group of people came out the centre and saw the hawks and started yelling and flapping their arms. It totally freaked out the hawks and one almost flew into the building.

Juvenile Red-Tailed hawks hunting in the plants July 3, 2010

It was so hot - the juvenile was running up and down the edge of the walkway picking up bugs, leaves, and sticks. Notice the tongue out (panting will cool them down just like your dogs)
