The last two weeks of January 2013 was wet and cold and I didn’t see much of our Red-tailed friends. However, February is a new month and they’re back!
Mama and Papa were busy ferrying fresh lumber from the Capitol lumber yard.
A quick peek at the nest reveals quite a bit more new lumber, some of which are considerably bigger in size. Not quite a 2×2, but close 🙂 They must be expecting a big family this year!
Mama made 2 trips, called it a day and rested atop the museum’s camera, maybe watching Papa finishing up the morning chores.
Papa went back several times to different trees. Hmmm, oak or pine ? No problem. Capitol Lumber has both always in stock!
Kudos to the hard-working duo.
After work, a well-deserved preening session was in order.
Ahhh.. Time to relax.
Looks like it’s going to be another Raleigh-Raptor year!
Watch for the Hawk-About sessions around the Capitol coming this spring!
