Red Shouldered Hawk with building supplies... (& Finiky you've ruffled my feathers)

I've managed to spot some wild Hawks at the US National Zoo numerous times.

This weekend I spotted at least 3 different birds, and two of them are a mated pair of Red-Shouldered Hawks. I found their nest and took a bunch of cool shots of them building the nest, sitting in the nest, mating, and eating a mouse!

I can't wait to go back and keep an eye on them.

For directions to the nest click the forum link in the description of this photo. It's pretty much above the Eagle habitat, towards the Bird House slightly.
