Another big hobby I’ve developed since moving here is birdwatching. Behind our home is a large Red Tail Hawk’s nest. I’ve been following the same nesting pair since 2005. They come back like clockwork every December. The first year there was only one chick, but we’ve had as many as three. There’s a wreath in the loggia that serves as a bird condo for wrens with five or six nests. I didn’t take it down soon enough one year and the birds took over. It’s been up ever since. Last year, some pigeons build a penthouse nest and drew lots of funny looks from the smaller birds.
