Our Swainson’s Hawks built a new nest in the trees north of our house, not so close to the highway. The babies hatched towards the end of June. The first time I could see one was July 10. There are 3 babies. When we returned from our vacation we noticed that there were only 2 babies in the nest… not sure what happened to the 3rd one. They’ve been off the nest since August 6 and I often see them flying around or sitting in a tree. Oct 2: we often see all 4 hawks flying around or on a fence post nearby.
