hehe great pictures Jane! They're so incredibly cute! I especially like the first pic--it's so clear I'm tempted to reach through the screen and stroke those beautiful feathers!

Oh Boy, I'm beginning to sweat our extended naming a bit. Rebel had his wings stretched this evening and was hopping around in the nest. He caught some air!

Yes, he is much larger than he appears in the photos. His wing span looks to be pushing 2 feet. We had some gusty winds from the coast this evening. So I'm not certain if he caught the air with his wings by accident or with intention.

It was quite awkward and a little funny. I learned you can't hold your breathe in fear of them falling and laugh at the goofy flapping and hopping simultaneously.

OMGosh! It is so hard to imagine that Rebel is that big. He must have been really surprised when he caught the air. I can so imagine that!

Wow, those are great photos of your "babies". It is sort of strange about you and hawks, but if you have seen them this often and they choose to build a nest near your home, something is telling me that your spirit guide is a hawk. And that is good. During this past winter, I was fortunate enough to walk under two Red Tail Hawks here in my apartment complex. They also had a nest near by, but I didn't go envestigating as there are to many young children that live here, that might have injured one or both by throwing rocks and such. But, now that it is summer, I will see one of the adults flying overhead when I get home from work at 6:30. Never have a camera on me, except on my phone, and they are way to high for a good photo.

Welcome to the forum Ninama1, and thank you for joining us! Red Tail Hawks are such majestic birds. To see them circling overhead fills our hearts with awe.

Maybe in the Fall, when the leaves thin out a bit, you'll be able to safely locate their nest. We might have another Hawk Nest Watch next Spring!

Yes, it is "sort of strange" how hawks tend to hang around me. But it's great and I hope it never ends. This morning has been a little too quite and I just went out the front door for a nest check. Apparently our little guys know the sound of not only car doors, but the front door too. They were low in the nest and I couldn't see them, so I went to the "good" spot in the back yard. They were squawking before I got there. It's almost lunch time!

It is really so endearing how they accept you and Tim in their 'hood'. They seem to be quite familiar and comfy with your daily routine and sounds of the house and car. That is assurance that the female will be back next year to nest close to you. I can so understand the joy in your heart you have for being blessed with so many generations of the same Hawk family. This is the third generation, right?

You and I both have a Hawk for spiritual guides, Jane. Whenever I am out in the desert alone, my spirit animals are with me - Puma and Hawk. At home, the Red Tailed Hawks are always around. One comes near to my patio every day to check on me. I agree with you, they are majestic.

It is so wonderful and special that the Hawk chose you.

OH MY! Rebel is climbing the TREE! He's a good 2 ft above the nest. Phyllis, I am thinking Momma Hawk will return to this nest next year. If she doesn't, and we're correct about Yankee being a girl, I bet she'll come back. She has been hunkered down in that nest all day. Momma Hawk will probably have to force her out when it's time smile


That's my brave little boy on the left.
