Sheep Meadow Has Hatched

I had visited the Sheep Meadow nest on Friday.  Except for the female being higher in the nest than normal, there was no sign of a hatch.  But today, after a visit by the male who seemed to be mesmerized by the contents of the nest, the female did a brief feeding.  It will be a few days before we can take "baby pictures", but it's great to see these hawks do well in their second year.

This year, the male has a strange tail feather.  While red in color it has stripes like a juvenile feather.  Something I've never seen before on a Red-tailed Hawk.
