    Default OT Hawk question

    I have lived in my present residence for 20 years and have seen a lot of hawks around. I have (to me) a very large nest in a tall tree. I believe the hawks to be Red Tail. I'm curious about their habits. Do both male and female
    share nest time? Does one or both hunt for food for their young? I haven't
    seen the young yet but I think the eggs have hatched. How many young do they normally have? They are a beautiful sight and I will be getting video of them as things progress. Any info will be great.

    Nick,

    Glad to hear you have some hawk activity in your area. About 10 years ago hawks were a rare sighting around here, but for about the past 5 years they have been making an amazing come back. I have never seen the little ones flying or otherwise. In our area we mostly see the red tail variety. There are some other types but I do not know what species they are. I could watch them flying around for hours.

    Nick did state that the post was off topic, so I don't know why some of you act like you have a bee in your bonnet.............GROW UP!!!

    We have red tails here, seems alot more every year.

    The darn things kill off all of the young rabbits. Haven't had a good harvest in a long time.

    They're getting to be a nusance here. They've done a real number on the rabbit population, along with the pheasant and quail population. Too bad they're federally protected, and one HECK of a fine if they find out you shot one. There's also an assortment of falcons and smaller sparrow hawks around here. Even a couple of Bald Eagles. And WAYY too many vultures.

    Well Monte,

    If you hurry up and get that personal helo finished, you can "buzz on up" and feed the young while they're still in the nest.

    Are you talking about the last post or the thread? I started the thread never
    indicating it was welding related......re: OT Hawk Question. I figured since there is so many on this forum that are close to nature, I might get an answer to a couple of questions...
