After the absence in 2016, local pair of Red-tailed Hawks came back to this nest once again and are raising 3 chicks this year :) 

Here is a short video showing week and a half old chicks being fed by an adult: 

This video was recorded on the 3rd week of April. By watching this nest on a weekly basis since late March, I estimate that chicks hatched in a week of 9-15/4/17.


If you are interested, you can watch my videos from the same nest, showing two Red-tailed Hawk chicks growing up in 2015. After discovering this nest, I decided to visit it for about an hour a week, to document development of these young hawks. I hope you will enjoy it :)

Week 1: Week 2: Week 3: Week 4: Week 5:
