Hawk Nest Watch 2001

Red-shouldered Hawks (Buteo lineatus elegans)
San Mateo County CA USA

Edgewood County Park, in San Mateo County CA USA, was again home to nesting red-shouldered hawks in Spring 2001. The nesting pair shared brooding duties in March and April; three chicks hatched April 16 through 18 and started fledging May 21, approximately 35 days later.

Digibird.com maintained a photographic nest watch and posted progress reports every few days. You can follow events in the nest by clicking on the thumbnails below. Two nestlings fledged successfully from this nest last year.
