Here are the latest Red-tails in downtown Raleigh.
Theia, Rhea and Dione
They’re getting quite active in the nest, preening, sleeping and flexing their wings.
and also so very curious of the world beyond their nest.
With 3 growing eyasses, there’s no room for Papa or Mama and they have to resort to using the dormers above.
Papa was on duty when he took a quick move to a lower deck. Then, something I’ve never seen Papa or Mama do. A bee (or hornet?) was flying close by…
I’m not sure if the bee was about to sting, but Papa took no chances
and grabbed that bee with his beak…
then flung it out. I guess it didn’t taste right 🙂
Look out Raleigh. Here we come!
