This blog is primarily about day to day birding experiences around North and South Carolina. I write about outings, birding trips or chases of the rare or unusual. I talk about citizen scientist projects I am involved with. I try to tell a story with a combination of words, personal thoughts and pictures to share my experiences and to help others to enjoy and understand the birds and the environment around us. Basically if it fly's and is in nature I will eventually talk about it.

I guess you were just being territorial weren't you!
A couple of weeks ago
About two weeks back I posted a photo of a Red-tailed Hawk that was
screaming into the wind. I don't get up to Concord Mills Mall too often
so when I found myself in the area today I decided to check the tree
line that she was previously. About 100 yards down from where I had seen
her perched I found her on nest. I also believe she is on eggs. When
you view the video you will see how it appears she is adjusting them and
then settles back onto them. Watch how she shores up the nest and uses a small stick to arrange her eggs. The video is not super sharp due
to the windy conditions. But it's still wonderful to see. Click here to watch her!
