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.

Nesting Time - March 30, 2009

Nesting Time:
This morning it is apparent that the red tails at SCC are on the nest. Arrived at work - Jack and I checked the nest and could barely see one red tail spread out on the nest. When the one red tail left - the other one arrived immediately and spread itself over the nest immediately. It hunkered down and can barely be seen.
It is a very cold day (snowing a bit) and during lunch I went out to have a look. The tree is swaying a bit with the wind and the red tail is hunkered right down. All I could see was the tip of the tail. As I went for a walk looking for the second hawk. I noticed in the Frank Faubert woods a beautiful female cooper's hawk right at the corner. Photos to be posted later.
In the afternoon 2:30 pm on my break - I saw both hawks flying together. Within a couple of minutes the one was back at the nest with a stick in the mouth and back on the nest.
