The first chick hatched around 12:00 today. I knew something had happened even before I checked the webcam this evening because my email in box was flooded with messages. I spent the afternoon in a miserable four hour hearing about natural resource protection in the industrial area of the Willamette River so it was really nice to walk in an read all these happy enthusiastic emails about wildlife in our city! I think I have posted them all at this point. Please keep them coming.
A quote for the day from the great northwest naturalist William Finley:
"The wild life of the red-tail has a fascination for me. He is as interesting as a person. He has a character as clearly marked as that in any feathered creature I ever saw."
Welcome to the world little creature.
