As expected, there was not much new going on at the Carrollton Red-tailed Hawk nest this week. The two hawks are frequently observed in the immediate area, and are often seen working on the nest, but it does not appear that they are incubating eggs just yet.

Red-tailed Hawks typically lay their eggs in March or April, so I believe we will begin seeing the female on the nest very soon.
