Corralitas Drive: Hawks Active

Neighbors are reporting considerable hawk activity this year. One pair, including Corra, the Red Tailed Hawk, have been collecting nesting material on Corralitas and flying in the direction of the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract. Look for Red Tail Hawk nests in the treetops. Urban hawks are not afraid to nest close to houses, as they did on Corralitas Drive in 2005.
