Artist's Description

Taken in Marana, Az with my Canon Powershot SX10IS.

I hope you are not tired of me showing off these babies. It is just a treat for me and I want to share the experience with you. Thanks for support and great comments regarding these babies. Any day now they will be off to start their own lives and I will be off to capture other subjects………

Last year I watched these two Red-tails build their nest. Didn’t see anything come of it, though I wasn’t looking or watching very hard. This year I was paying attention and viola! Babies. There are two of them and they are too cute. I only stuck around for 10 minutes because Mom & Dad are all to aware of my truck and are always watching…..This is what I could capture in that time along with about 99 more..lol


A clutch of 1 to 3 eggs is laid in March or April, depending upon latitude. Clutch size depends almost exclusively on the availability of prey for the adults. Eggs are laid approximately every other day. The eggs are usually about 60 × 47 mm (2.4 × 1.9 in). They are incubated primarily by female, with the male substituting when the female leaves to hunt or merely stretch her wings. The male brings most food to the female while she incubates. After 28 to 35 days, the eggs hatch over 2 to 4 days; the nestlings are altricial at hatching. The female broods them while the male provides most of the food to the female and the young, which are known as eyasses (pronounced “EYE-ess-ess”). The female feeds the eyasses after tearing the food into small pieces. After 42 to 46 days, the eyasses begin to leave the nest on short flights. The fledging period lasts up to 10 weeks, during which the young learn to fly and hunt
