Growing Up Red Tailed Hawk #5
This is a very sad day for me, Monday May 16th.
Midnite was killed by a car sometime between Sunday night, May 15th and early Monday morning. It is tragic. Hopefully Sunshine can raise her chicks on her own now.

A new Hawk, was perched on a back pole Monday morning. I went from sadness to hope! I’ve named him Chance (2nd chance). At first I didn’t know what to expect. Would he try to kill the chicks?
Sunshine chases him off any time he comes near the nest. This has been going on for a few days now. But he still sticks around.
Tuesday morning I was here when Sunshine brought a rabbit to the nest. It was so exciting! That’s a good sign she isn’t going to abandon the nest. If she did, I contacted the Birds of Prey Foundation and they would rescue the chicks.
