Subject: [southbaybirds] Swainson's Hawks, Part Two
The pictures I took of the hawks this morning at the Morgan Hill Charter
School are not good enough for Facebook, but I added some to my eBird

One of the pictures shows one of the birds carrying a twig back to the
tree. It seems to me that they plan to build a nest there. This is why I
was hesitant to report this sighting.

This is the same tree that has been reported on before. It has a flat top
and it's right in the parking lot. I took Bailey off 101 and drove into the
north entrance and saw one right away. Approaching from the south on
Monterey doesn't give as good a view.

I kept my distance and took a few shots out through my sunroof, but these
two didn't seem to mind me being there, so I parked and walked around.

They were both off for the day by 10:30 or so.
