Juvenile Red-tailed Hawks

July 25, 2017

A couple of months ago, biologist Dan Cooper brought to our attention that a pair of Red-tailed Hawks had nested in the canyon below the GNG.  Well, they successfully fledged two chicks and now the two siblings are spending a lot of time in the garden.  For the most part, their day consists of practicing their hunting skills (the ground squirrels have been very nervous these days) and begging their parents for food.  Hopefully they will both survive and find territories that they each can call their own.
