4/19, J. Hood Wright Park

My main goal on Saturday was the red-tailed hawk nest across from J. Hood Wright Park. The female there had been brooding since at least March 16, so a hatch by now seemed likely. When I arrived, the female was bent over the nest and wiggling about a bit. But it lasted just a few moments. She looked around briefly.

And then settle back down in the nest.

And there she stayed. And stayed. Except for getting up and stretching about 40 minutes later, she stayed on the nest until sunset.

A hatch seemed doubtful. But the timing it such is should be any day now.
