Description

We have been observing hawk nest since we moved out into the desert a couple years ago. We are close to Federal and State land that offers a multitude of wildlife observation. My passion is red tail hawks and we have been so lucky to be able to observe these hawks and their little ones. There are three pair we’ve observed: 1)Scarlett and Rhett 2015 and 2016 they taught us hawk-person manners and are now comfortable with our presence. They had only one success last year but 3 this year, 2) Bonnie and Clyde are new this year. They successfully raised 3 this year. 3) Kate and Doc (Big Nose Kate and Doc Holliday). They are also new this year and successfully raised 3 this year as well. They were the most wary of our presence.

2016 - These are Bonnie & Clyde's"bobble heads". All three successfully left the nest. This was the first nest we found in a saguaro, which led us to find others.
