We have been seeing a young hawk at the airport for a while now.
This area is fairly close as a hawk would fly from the eagle nest in Sidney where a young hawk was raised by eagles.
We never can get close to him as it is fenced of course. You can click on the photos and they get bigger.
I cannot get a good picture or video of him as he is too far away. I found another hawk but he was older, a two year old.
It does not look like this one has red on his tail feathers but he is always far away. I cannot do an identification as my pictures are all blurry. I kindly need someone, a local person with a large camera lens, to go out there and get a photo of this hawk for id purposes.
There also is a mature Red-tailed hawk always there over in the tree area. I think there is a nest in there as we heard some hawk screaming there in the summer. So this young one could be a baby from another nest. I am hoping it is the young hawk from the eagle nest.
I have no idea or knowledge of the danger to hawks in this area from strikes but I know there always has been a lot of hawks in the area for years we have seen them there. They do use trained raptors at some airports to scare away the birds. There is a lot of food in the area from all those fields. The young hawk seems to be always flying low and completely safe from the planes. He is there every day. This is not the older hawk that I got pictures and video of this is another hawk who is much younger.
So if any of the locals read my blog, kindly please go out to the east side of the airport near the Pat Bay Highway and take this young hawk's picture. Oh and then let me know at my Facebook or blog, twitter, instagram or email in the contact section above or however. Just post the photos somehow. Thanks for your kindness.
