Red-Tailed Hawk Home and Children
I went to photograph the Red-tailed Hawk nest that
told me about, but forgot the location he had told me, so I went up to
and he helpfully marked the nest location on a map of Forest Park, and sent me on my way.
Though it was quite hot, I enjoyed the walk, and I located the nest high above in a deciduous tree near the Muny. Here’s the scene:
The nest is to the left, and one of the parents is sitting on the tree to the right:
Very happy with the sighting, I walked home in the humid heat…but Forest Park had a few more delights awaiting me yet! But for these Hawks…thank you, Mark and Chris!
Here’s Chris, in front of his cycle rental van:
Next up, the Western Painted Turtle, the Green Heron, and the Ruby-throated Hummingbird….
