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 Hawks nest gone March2, 2011

Unfortunately it appears that the red-tailed hawk nest that has been in the tree for two years is gone. I did a check on the ground - not a single branch or twig, nor in the tree where the nest was in 2009 and 2010 is completely gone. No twigs or branches or anything up there. Checked under the tree - nothing.

The hawks have been flying around but with the nest gone it is possible they will move it to another location. There has been no signs of rebuilding the nest. Sad to see this happen.

Wish I knew how the nest disappeared?????????????????????????????????????????

It wouldn't surprise if the city used a cherry picker to remove the nest after-hours or on a weekend. There is no way a nest like that just disappears without any trace.

If I recall, the powers that be wanted to erect a building in the area.

Very sad indeed.

Can you please look at the photo I just posted to my blog of a nest I "found" yesterday in my Washington State Woods? I'm hoping it's a Hawk nest, as we have a red-tail in our area!
Love your blog!
