First spotting of the eyas in nest May 10, 2010

On May 10, 2010 Diane and Gary observed the eyas in the nest at 12:16 from the upstairs window. Eyeas looks good and very downy. So far just one eyas seen.
That morning the female almost caught a gull - talons out and ready when full suddenly does a free fall to escape. In the evening the female leaves the nest. Baby is alone for approximately 5 minutes. Returns with new nest materials branches to expand the nest.

The male rendezvous with female on the spruce tree by the nest. Male red-tailed hawk carrying prey (food) for eyas. Baby fed vigorously dipping, male stays very close in the nearby spruce.
