HK Builds His Nest

HK Builds His Nest

Saturday, May 9, 2015

HK to the rescue 5.8.15.

I checked out the same spot this morning where I saw HK and his companion yesterday, and the companion was squawking her head off as I arrived.

Then she sat for a bit.

Two Red-tailed Hawks were harassing her. Here's one, directly overhead. It actually landed in the same tree. The Hawks may have a nest close by. She held her ground for about twenty minutes, and was repeatedly dive bombed by both Hawks.

Suddenly, a second Eagle appeared on the scene. The purple and silver bands identified this Eagle as HK. He circled overhead, calling out.

The companion Eagle then left the tree. The picture is zoomed to show she (I assume a female) is not banded.

Here she is as she and all the other birds left the vicinity.
