Red-tailed Hawks Share Incubation Responsibilities
Big Red arrives back at the nest with some more nesting material to give her mate, Arthur, a break from incubating. She keeps the egg warm and he flies off in search of some breakfast. Throughout the incubation period, which lasts about 28 days, both parents will take turns incubating the egg. In the past, Big Red has laid an egg every 2.5 to 3 days, so hopefully another egg will appear soon!
