Here's a very interesting observation (to me) in our backyard:

There are two immature Red-tailed Hawks practicing nest building and 
courtship!
They have been hanging around for over a month.

They have played around with a semblance of a nest in a neighbor's Sycamore 
tree.
Plus they tolerate one another too (which is sort of a must).

I predict that next year will be the real thing , and they'll nest-build and 
go for it
as two adults!  Maybe not right here but very close by - close enough for me 
to notice!

I'll agree, lots of misfortunes can happen:  they can go elsewhere (smart) 
or my Milwaukee
best neighbor corrects them, or a natural accident, etc.  We'll see.  I'll 
remember and keep you posted.

Good birding,  Larry H.  Joplin (Jasper County) sw MO.
