Found this pair of Red-tailed Hawks building a nest in a cell tower in Round Rock, Texas. Hope the nest makes it. (4-15-12)

Nice being able to document the nest building process. We have a pair that abandoned an established nest in a Pine tree and moved across the interstate and have done very well in the cell tower they now nest in.

Very interesting Barry!
I really like the 2nd IF. Great detail underneath and as crisp as you could want.
I guess cell phone companies will soon use this to aid their progress in building more towers.
