It has been a very busy time for the Red-Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond. .. There are 2 eyas for certain, and as of this morning, I am pretty sure 3.
With those wings growing and flopping around, it is still difficult to know for sure, but I thought that I saw a third little white fuzzy head there.
A couple more trees show canopy growth touching the nest tree and so tomorrow evening, I will place aluminum pending around them, as I did a couple of weeks ago, to keep those pesky Raccoons at bay.
The young eyas are top priority for now, and I am so passionate about making sure that they have a good chance.
I love that one of the families that is allowing me access to their property homeschools their children and they are quite interested in the hawk activity.
One of the little girls will yell "Hi bird lady" and I love that;')
The family that lives directly across the lane from the nest tree, the mom runs a preschool and her students and their families also know about the hawk activity and they are also quite excited by it all.
Another reason to help ensure that all goes according to plan, and does well~
I am also linking with World Bird Wednesday, please visit other birding photographers and enthusiasts from around the world at:
The adult male, usually is so busy bringing in multiple meals throughout the day, that he took a rare break recently. In fact so rare, that I have only captured him at the nest like this before, once, or twice, ever~
