First sighting of a baby red-tailed hawk in the Grant's Tomb nest was apparently made this past Wednesday evening. On Friday evening, two nestlings were definitely spotted up there.
About 6:30, Mrs. Grant was finishing up a feeding. She remained perched on the side of the nest as I wandered around looking for better camera angles.
Finally I settled on a spot a block away but from which a minimum of tree branches and leaves block the view.
At 6:50, there was some activity in the nest. Even from a distance of 200 feet, I could tell without a long lens that there was someone small moving about just to the side of her. But a closer look at photos revealed there was a second fuzzy baby hawk head directly in front of Mrs. Grant.
Things quieted down again, but 15 minutes later, the babies were moving about again.
And it would seem that the babies are big enough, you can even catch a glimpse of a flapping baby wing as they move about.
