Red-Shouldered Hawks Mating

The for last several weeks, the Red-Shouldered Hawks had been checking out trees around the house. Yesterday I finally spotted where they had built their nest.  Early this morning I watched as the female brought in additional sticks for the nest.  Rain began so I called it quits.  This afternoon I heard the screeching so I went out with camera in hand.  The male came in bringing food for the female who was on the nest.  I was not sure until I saw her rise out of the nest is she wast sitting yet.
