A couple of weeks ago, we had a break in our rotten weather and I decided I would head out for a walk around town, with my camera in hand, of course.
As I walked through a new city park, I heard the screeching of a Red-tailed Hawk. Glancing around, I spotted one circling and as I raised my camera, it glided in for a landing on the top of a nearby tree.
I snapped off a few shots and noticed the large mass below the hawk at the top of the tree. Looking closer, I realized it might be a nest. As I walked around looking at the top of the tree, I felt more and more confident of my conclusion.
At one point, a second, smaller, Red-tailed Hawk, probably a male, circled the area. After a few minutes, the perched hawk took off and joined the other hawk. The pair headed to the northeast and I lost sight of them.
Since the possible nest is not far from my place, I have kept an eye on it. The pair of Red-tailed Hawk tend to stay in the area of that tree, but I have yet to notice any sitting on the nest.
