Building Her Nest

She found a twig she likes in a neighboring tree.

She spent a couple of minutes fighting with it.

She got it, and is headed back to the nest.

The nest is about two inches taller than it was yesterday.

    She’s got a ways to go. Once she has hatchlings check every day as you go by to see if there are any on the ground under the nest. Usually there will be at least one that ends up on the ground before they fledge.

    She is making America great again, without taking a cent of tax dollars.

  3. What kind of camera / lens do you use for those excellent photos?

    Red tail hawk?

      Yes. Probably the most commonly seen Raptor over most of the US. I had a pair nest in a big Chinese Elm tree in my front yard for a few years running until I had all my trees trimmed. In my travels as a truck driver I see them all over. Driving along I-55 in Missouri and Arkansas through a lot of rice and cotton fields during the spring one will see a juvenile bird sitting on a fence post or in a tree near the interstate every few miles.
