Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: Red Tail Hawk Babies Confirmed

Photo: Gary Vlahakis, May 3, 2013.  The first photo confirms there are at least 2, maybe 3 white fluffy heads in the Red Tailed Hawk nest, high above the corner of Allesandro & Rosebud, on the northbound 2 Freeway parkway. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
