Photographer Trudi Maish took this beautiful photo of a hawk on the tower on the Motherhouse Campus, Nazareth, Kentucky recently. The photo is of a Red-tailed Hawk, and Carolyn Cromer, Director of Ecological Sustainability, relays these details from one of the experts that has been carrying out a census of birds found at Nazareth. “The larger body suggests it could be a female which are quite a bit larger than the males. It is most likely one of a mated pair. At this point in nesting season the nestlings are almost fully feathered, exercising their wings, and requiring lots of prey. Mom and dad will be hunting continuously. One will forage further out and the other will stick closer to the nest. This nest is believed to be in the woods between Old Nazareth Road and Nazareth Road.”

Let's stay in touch.
