During a visit to a friend in Central Alberta last week, we had a chance to observe and listen to this pair of Red-tailed Hawks-they were raising quite a rucus! Sure enough, we spotted their nest and took photos of them. Mostly the the one hawk would stay in the tree while the other would fly off, sometimes getting dive-bombed by smaller birds who were also nesting. There was so much to explore at this roadside pond that the hawks were not always the main focus.There were nesting pairs and young offspring. There was a glorious sunset that night as well and all looked wonderful whether we were looking directly at the sunset or in the opposite direction.I will save that for next post, but for now, here are some photos of the hawks, not great quality due to the distance.
