A bit of sad news . . .
Well, the Red Shouldered Hawks have not been present on the nest for about the last 5 days. It appears they have abandoned the nest and have started to build a new one. On Sunday I saw both hawks soaring above my house and calling vehemently. I also noticed that they were carrying sticks and pine branches. My hope is that despite their first attempt going wrong, they are trying again and are building a new nest. I haven't located it yet, and I'm not sure that I will, but if I do, I will post to the blog. I hope that they are successful and am a bit saddened that we won't get to see the nestlings this year.
