Wonderful.

Where I ride the commuter train in San Diego, the train passes by a couple of hawks' nest, each about 15 feet apart from each other up in the trees.

I've seen some baby hawks in the past with their heads sticking out of the nests.

Did someone get a judge to sign off on a warrant for this surveillance?...

They may be about to switch.....the female looks active and she seemed to call out....

Something's up. I think she called her mate.....

The female is rolling the eggs....
Excuse me, it's the male currently on the nest....that means the female will be back within the hour and a switch will happen.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The male flew off and she just sat down. She's adjusting things' messin' with the twigs and such.
Boy, when you watch them, you can tell she's bigger.....

She's in for the night....she will stay on til dawn.
Wow. She is big.

The eggs are supposed to hatch around Mar 13.

Here's a neat picture showing how to tell the difference between a male and female.
BTW, the female is bigger.



It shows how the side of the beak goes further back on the female.

You can also tell by their 'shoulders'. The females have more pronounced shoulders.

I didn't know that, Riv; thanks!

Also, the male's tail feathers are squared off and the female's is rounded.

Over 200 schools are watching this in the USA. I called my kids's school yesterday, and got them in on it. Cool.................
