Red-shouldered Hawks have attempted to nest in Allendale and nearby Ramsey since 2002.
We had a successful nest in 2004. 2007 was a calamity, with a female Red-shoulder dying after colliding wth a window.
In 2008, a female Red-shoulder was again found injured, but this one survived and was named Laura, after the woman who found her.
She had a nest with two hatchlings in 2009, but fell victm to predators.
In 2010, we saw no successful nests.
