Hawks return to downtown Philly nest for 3rd year
PHILADELPHIA - March 23, 2011 (WPVI) -- A pair of red-tailed hawks is apparently feeling the brotherly love in Philadelphia.
The mating couple has returned to its unusual urban nest on a ledge at the city's science museum for the third straight year.
The Franklin Institute has a webcam that allows thousands of bird lovers to watch as the hawks raise their young. The female had laid three eggs as of Wednesday.
The baby hawks are expected to hatch in late April and take their first flights in early June.
By the end of June, they will have flown the coop.
