Hi John, 
Yes the nests are very close. From the buss garage the RTHA nest is easier to 
see. It is in the tree with the painted 150 yd. marker. It was only after 
people reported seeing Owls after I left that I started to get suspicious.

Well, I'll be darned. It certainly does sound as if there were two raptor 
nests. They would have to be very close to each other. In fact, I was pretty 
certain I was looking at the same nest/location where I saw the adult owl about 
10 days ago. The two nests must be really close. I'll have to go back to try to 
see both nests. I'm still not completely convinced I was looking at a different 
nest because in location and structure, it certainly looked like my memory of 
the owl nest.

Life is interesting.

Cheers,

John

There is a Red-tailed hawk nest not far from the owls' nest.  We have photos
of the owls from Friday evening, April 17.

Hi,

I saw the GHO on the nest today.

Cheers,
