The young Red-tails are now about 5-6 weeks old and my, my… how they’ve changed:
April 22 – White and fluffy
May 8 – Not so fluffy no more
May 14 – Starting to look like hawks
If you remember last year, Wynken fell from the nest on 5/21/2012 but was not injured as he already had functional wings. He only needed to flap and flap he did :). A week later, Wynken, Blynken and Nod fledged.
When will Eden, Sally and Hillary fledge? My guess is around May 29 or 30.
