Better Glimpses Of A Riverside Youngster
Two Heads Are Better Than One

Still Very Hard To See

It's still really hard to get a glimpse of an eyass at Riverside. Expect to spend an hour or two to get just a brief look.  The number of eyasses is also still unclear.

This pair has had such a difficult time with only one youngster having made it out of nine in the last three years makes this new nest extra special.  For those unfamiliar with the story, in 2008 three eyasses died due to secondary rat poisoning, in 2009 two out of three fledglings died after being hit by cars, and earlier this year three eyasses were killed when the nest collapsed in strong winds.

So this second clutch brings with it new hopes for this pair of hawks.
