Meet Your (Southeast) Atlanta Hawks

Redtailed hawks sighted all over Southeast Atlanta

Over the past few days in Ormewood Park and East Atlanta, if you didn't see them, you certainly heard their screeches.

Residents have sighted them in various spots and Ormewood Park resident Zack Ezzo, managed to snap this shot of one.

There are still squirrels in my yard. Lots of squirrels. Tasty squirrels. Raised on the very best acorns and bird seed. Here, hawky hawky hawky. What will it take for you to build a nest in one of my trees?

A pair of redtail hawks have been flying back-and-forth over Ashford Park for years.About three in the afternoon they'll fly overhead from the direction of Oglethorpe University to somewhere into the direction of the McDonalds' on lower Buford Hwy and beyond. They'll often stop on a very tall pine behind Post Apartments on the east side of Caldwell. They'll be seen several hours later returning into the direction they came from with the same occasion stops on the pine. They may be the same hawk pair. About seven years ago they had a young one accompanying them for a bit over a year. Two weeks ago while walking down Caldwell Rd, I saw one of the pair searching through curb-side gutter leaves, about ten feet away from me, almost exactly as the picture here.. With so-many people gazing at their toes with cell-phones stuck in their ears nowadays, they just don't see them anymore. But they've always been there.
