Hello Raleigh, We’re Back

After a few brief sightings of the residents in the past few days, finally …

January 29, 2015

The sun was barely above the horizon on a chilly January day, but one Red-tail was sitting on a fence rail…

I wasn’t sure what they were looking at down below.  I certainly did not see anything interesting like prey, but they have better vision than me.

They didn’t hunt but took off, one at a time and started getting ready for this year!

They flew in the direction of the ol’ nest, but I haven’t seen any renovations yet.

Question is,  will they use the same nest?

We’ll see.
