Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: Red Tailed Hawks Renovating Nest On 2 Freeway

Photo: Gary Vlahakis, March 4, 2014.  The pair of Red Tailed Hawks have been repairing their nest at the corner of Allesandro & Rosebud, in the northbound 2 Freeway parkway.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

It is mating season, so the hawks are working on the nest. Red Tails will reuse the same nest year after year.  

 Vlahakis says "I haven't caught anyone [i.e. hawks] there yet, but work has obviously been done.  Saw the female on a telephone pole on Lake View yesterday talking up a storm."
