Its still not clear if these hawks will nest on Shepard Hall, but I've been observing them nest-building and mating for the past 2 weeks. Here's some of the action and as always, an interesting surprise!
Mom and Dad, busy adding sticks to their nest.
Thats when another hawk showed up!
WTF...it was last year's baby,
joining in on nest building duty!
The parents amazingly tolerated the youngster, but didnt seem too thrilled when it repeatedly landed in the nest. Is this why they always choose not to pick this location or are they nesting in another spot further uptown? Only time will tell.
