As I have described several times, we have a nest nearby that the eagles and the hawks have each been grooming and building over the past several weeks. Two years ago, there was a hawk family in there but last year it was empty. This year it seems to be a popular spot for both a pair of eagles as well as a pair of hawks. This creates a great deal of activity in our backyard here in Magnolia. Today I observed what I believe to be mating between a pair of nearby red tail hawks. The female flew into the tree from a nearby perch and the male soon joined. Shortly after they seemed to be done, the male flew off. Not a comment on male/female relations, but take from it what you will…….
