Hawks mate for life, unless one is killed. Then, the remaining individual may take another mate.
I loved seeing them sitting side-by-side. I took this shot and then continued up the road towards them, hoping for a closer one. They did not wait around for me and flew off, one at a time, as I approached. I was no threat to them. They were really high up in the tree.
Would you look at THAT! Spring is coming - March 20th! Signs are showing up. Are you hearing more bird song? Seeing trees beginning to bud? Winter is almost over. By the way, we are supposed to get another 4-6 inches of snow tonight. Boston is hoping to break its record and move 2014-2015 into first place for the snowiest winter on record. We are about 4 inches shy now. We shall see!
