Oh those Hawks break by heart
Monday, May 03, 2021
For the third time this year the hawks nest has fallen out of the palm tree. This time they lost two eggs. Yesterday when I was planting I heard them so upset and I walked down and there were the broken eggs. Their grief is so intense. I wish I had a way to prevent them from building in that tree but they go back every time. When the wind blows that tree can sway as much as ten feet at the top and it dislodges their nest.
Im not sure if hawks return to the same place very year to nest but they must as they seem to want to build only in that tree. I have many stable redwoods that are just as tall and sturdy they could build in and they chose the palm.
