Silver Ridge Ave: Totally Urban Hawk

Photo: Diane Edwardson, June 18, 2011, 10:22 AM.  Mr. Rose, one of the nesting Red Tailed Hawks, uses railings of houses overlooking the Red Car Property, in addition to Corralitas Drive, as a high vantage point for hunting gophers and rats.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

This Red Tail is very comfortable around people.  Do not attempt to feed him. He has a nest at Allesandro & Rosebud with at least 2 babies.  The babies can be heard (from Corralitas Drive) screaming to be fed.
