Edgewood's Red-Shouldered Hawks, Spring 2000

A few days later, both fledges were spending the greater part of the day out of the nest. They explored their tree and its contents, with a watchful adult always nearby.

It quickly became much harder to monitor the fledges, because they favored dense parts of the tree where their coloring made them nearly invisible. They were very interested in their new, larger habitat, although they returned to the nest each night for several more days.

They also seemed to have a greater appreciation of the importance of feather care. (I very rarely saw them groom themselves in the nest.)
