Whoohoo! Over the past two weeks, these awesome raptors have begun arriving along the Front Range after spending the winter in Mexico and South America. This past weekend was my first chance to see them this season and I found they had returned to all their usual spots north of Denver.
At this particular nest, the female kept herself busy adding to her already large nest. Here you can see her as she adds a stick she retrieved from a nearby tree. Her mate was a bit less than enthusiastic in helping make their home and opted to sit out in a tree, well away from the construction activity.
