Big news!

It's official...we have baby hawks!

Reports are in that Christo and Dora's first chick hatched this morning some time before 8:30 and the second one is probably hatched by the time of this posting.  The third is due any time.

Chick pics from the nest cam will be available in a few days, but here is one from this morning at 6:15 that shows eggs 1 and 2 with cracks, as the parents look on.

  1. yay!!! Wonderful news! What will we name them?!

  2. Yes, i'm very excited!

    I think birders would say to name them 1, 2 and 3. :)

  3. Or, until they are grown, we could call them Avenue A, Avenue B and Avenue C! :)

    Very exciting! I've been sharing these pictures with one of my students at work - we'd been watching the WSP hawks for the past three years, and it's great to see these guys this year.
