Feathered Friends

Red-shouldered Hawk Feather

Spring has come and a young hawk’s mind turns to–well it isn’t exactly spring training. There are at least two mating pairs of these hawks in our neighborhood; one pair with a nest located one street over from us and another nesting in the tree in our front yard. Their intention of hatching and raising chicks in the near future is confirmed by repeated conjugal activities in our back yard. This feather in the grass seems to assure their continued presence for generations to come.
