Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: Feeding Time Gets Frenetic

Video: Gary Vlahakis, May 29, 2012, 9AM.  Watch all 4 Red Tail Hawk babies react as they hear one of the adults call as it approaches, lands, drops prey in the nest, then the second adult brings more prey in this short 1 minute video.  (Best viewed in  full screen HD - Blogger automatically changes the settings to the lowest possible resolution on this page.) 

It's pretty impressive there's room for 6 birds in the nest.  No wonder the female was obsessed with strengthening the southeast corner of the nest in March.

We're tracking the progress of the nesting Red Tailed Hawks, less than 100' from the controversial 16-lot development in the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract.  Video shot from Corralitas Drive.
