Lots Of Activity On Saturday

Saturday was full of activity with both hawks being seen for most of the afternoon.

Rosie hunted and caught a small rodent at 3rd and LaGuardia. This area is heavily baited with rat poison, so it isn't the best spot for her to hunt. (There is speculation in the scientific community, that in addition to secondary poisoning of hawks from rat poison, it may led to infertility. I have wondered if the failure of two out of the three eggs last year might have been an issue with rodenticides,)

I didn't witness any copulation, but both hawks visited the nest on Saturday.
