7/11, Lurking in the Shadows

Wednesday evening again found two of the young cathedral red-tailed hawks in the south-side close. But there were only a few minutes of swooping about before one exited, turning a U-ey around the Synod House and heading east along 110th St. The second, however, found a shaded branch over the sidewalk alongside the Synod House and stuck around.

The only problem was that soon after he picked the spot, the area blue jays finally chimed in with their displeasure.

Well, there was also the matter that the same tree had a squirrel nest in its upper branches, and someone up there started dropping twigs on the hawk below.

The overhead noise abated. The young hawk was happy in its perch and looked like it was good to stay there for a while.
