This is the third year the woodland buteos have nested in the wetlands downstream from the homesite pond. And the second year they chose a spot behind the red-tailed tail enclosure, much to the chagrin of the redtail; much too close for her comfort level.
The nest is seeable from North Cove Trail behind the Visitor Center. Our own Rex McDaniel got an excellent bit of video. Watch to the right to see the little white puff-ball nestlings. Two we know, perhaps three. Time will tell.
