4: Hawk flying overhead.
5: Red-Tailed Hawks keep their mates for life. Although they don't live together in the same nest, they share the same territory. The mother sits on the eggs and the father feeds the mother. Once they are ready to fly, the babies still rely on their parents for food. Once they are on their own, they will find their own territory to build their nest.
