There has been a red-tailed hawk at the intersection of HY 7 and HY 100 in for several years. Before the state upgraded the cloverleaf, there was a small woods at the intersection. Sometimes I saw a great horned owl in the trees. There was a nest. I suspect the owls and the redtails traded off on the use of the nest from year to year.
Now there are only a few trees left in the south west quadrant of the intersection. About two weeks ago the redtails started building a nest. Since then I've seen a hawk on the nest several times. It is easy to view when you wait for the west bound HY 7 traffic light. No sign of the owls.
