People like to think of the Parkway as the start of Fairmount Park, a piece of nature grafted into the city. A pair of Red-tailed Hawks think Logan Square makes mighty fine habitat to raise a family.
The hawks have been nesting on a third-floor windowsill overlooking Logan Square since 2009. And not long after they arrived The Franklin Institute set up a webcam to watch the pair nest and their offspring hatch.
The excitement begins in March – three eggs are already in the nest this year – and continues through June when fledglings leave the nest. Stay tuned for an April hatching.
For background on the hawks, the Franklin Institute made this video.
