Red-tailed Hawk Story: 2016, Week 2

On March 31, Ez delivered the first snakes of the season to the nest. Other than that,  it was generally “business as usual.” Keysfishin summed it up as follows in a tweet:

Projected Hatch Dates are as follows, but of course the eggs will hatch when they want to.



0328 @ 7:45 AM BR keeping the eggs nice and dry


0328 @ 2:38 PM BR balling up her talons to protect the eggs as she settles


0330 @ 2:21 PM


0330 @ 2:23 PM Ez rolling the eggs and showing off his pantaloons


0331 @ 3:47 PM BR leaving with the 2nd snake that Ez delivered that afternoon

  • Historical Chart with Dates for Laying, Hatching, and Fledging:
    A note has been added to this chart: “We can identify with certainty when each egg is laid but not the definite order of hatching. Therefore, the individual designations, such as “G1, G2, G3″ [on the chart] should be taken as reasonable estimates only.”
