Red-tailed Hawk Story: Week 11

What an exciting week! As of Saturday, June 13, the Fs entered the very, very early stages of their “Fledge Window”. They have all wandered out first beyond the sticks, and then out near the fledge ledge. It was also another soggy and stormy week, with some nicer weather towards the end. And of course there was the gathering of hawkaholics, “Nest Fest”, also on June 13. See the Nest Fest update in Chatters Corner, as well as other new contributions.
