Last year I watched this 24/7 live streaming Hawk cam from about this same time, and saw three eggs come to hatching, the feeding and growth of the young ones, and their fledging. It was a marvelous thing to witness.
We even have a Facebook group, we "Hawkaholics," and we have been corresponding with each other all through the fall and winter. It's a nice community of people from all over the place.
as I was driving home yesterday afternoon, I heard my first Red-Winged Blackbird of the season.
The grounds people cut back the trees and reeds in the drainage pond terribly, and I was wondering if the birds would return. But they are back!
