Early morning stretch

March 1 –

Just like last year, Mama has started to stay in the nest for extended periods.   While I can’t be 100% sure there’s eggs  in the nest, i’m 99% sure there are :).

I waited around for Papa or Blynken to show up with food, but they were nowhere to be found.  Mama took off for a stretch and met up with Papa.

3 hawks?  actually, the ‘hawk’ in the lower part of this image is a reflection of the hawk on top.

The incubation period for Red-tail hawk eggs is about 28-35 days (thanks google 🙂 ) so we should hope to see small furry blobs of cotton in the nest come April.

  1. Your photography is so wonderful and your writing and comments just add more to the enjoyment of keeping up with the hawks. Everyday when I walk across the Capitol square I look and listen for them.
    Thank you for sharing your talents.
