Red-tailed Hawk Story – Week 1
To no one’s surprise, once BR laid her first egg, we knew that all other eggs would be laid this week. We can’t rule out a fourth egg as these raptors have a habit of surprising us, but it’s not likely. The night of the 29th, with one egg on the nest, BR spent the entire night partying while Ez incubated the egg. Of course I am joking about the partying, but REALLY BR! 🙂
Here is ncaerie’s video of her return:
