(See photo for an example of of a midwestern Red-tail tree nest. Unless disturbed, these Red-tailed Hawk pairs use the same nest with seasonal additons, year after year. D.B.)

Inwood Park RT Nest Update from Urban Hawk Observer Mitch Nusbaum

5/05 Friday,

Still one Hawklet at Tuliptree. The entire time there, the mom stood up in the bowl. The nest is an eye level view East of the observation point.

For the time I was there, 1:30-3:30pm, the mom stood up. I got a solid eyeball of the Hawklet at 2:58p, he poked his head up like a jack-in-the-box. 3:05p mom feeding bill-bill.

With each passing day foliage is filling out making sighting more difficult. This warm day brought many foraging warblers, sometimes in the foreground where the baby was. Still just 1 hawklet.
