For the third year in a row, a pair of Red-tailed Hawks have successfully raised young at Mount Auburn Cemetery. Young Red-tails are particularly vocal, and on July 18 Bob Stymeist and I were driving through Mount Auburn when we heard the distinctive calls of the young birds. We followed the sound, and watched this hawk as he alternatively shrieked, and fed on some sort of avian prey (probably pigeon, see left). He fed with wings lowered, as if to protect his prey. His sibling, perched on a gravestone below the tree, was shrieking back, but making no particular effort to steal the food, almost as if he expected to be fed.
