Red-tailed Hawks make nest at Lawrence General Hospital!

April 1, 2013 in Red-tailed Hawk

A pair of Red-tailed Hawks have returned to an old nest located on the grounds of Lawrence General Hospital.  The nest has been occupied before but not last year.  Recently, nest building activity has been noticed with fresh green twigs placed around the nest perimeter.  Staff members in nearby offices have marked March 26, as the date of the initial egg being laid.  The nest is being monitored daily with hopes of a productive breeding season!
