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.

Stayed Late at Work and What a Treat April 1, 2009

Had a late day at work and decided to check out the red tails downstairs by the nest. Saw the red-tail hawk fly by. Sat on the planter and figured ok I will wait a few minutes and see what happens. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a hawk land on the construction site beside my building. Waited again. Then to my dismay I saw a piece of construction paper flying down towards the nest (or so I thought) and I decide to take a shot of it only to discover it is the red-tailed hawk flying down fast. WOW. It lands on the tree beside the nest and perches there for a couple of minutes then jumps over to the nest and lays back down. OK it seems like it was an hour but it was a matter of minutes. So exciting. I have some photos I will post.
It rained all day and just at the end of work the sun comes out and a beautiful blue sky.
To make my day even better I come home and there is a fox on my front yard. Great day.
