The Swainson’s returned May 7 and started rebuilding one of their former nests from 2 years ago. Not often that I see a Sharp-shinned Hawk. I noticed the Swainson on her nest on May 28. On July 15, I finally spotted 2 fluffy white chicks on the nest. Some time after July 23, I noticed that there was only 1 chick on the nest. We have no idea what happened to the 2nd one. Our young hawk went off his nest on August 13th. Unfortunately he was hit by a vehicle on August 18th and died. He was an unusual colour.
