Red-tailed Hawk nestling graduates to Hack Box

The pair of red-tailed hawk nestlings rescued in early May https://www.soarinhawk.org/birds/05072017-redtailed%20hawk-two-nestlings have graduated to Hack Boxes.  What is a Hack Box?  It is a man made structure that provided shelter from the elements, protection from predators, a covered balcony, yet is large enough for the birds to exercise a bit. A Hack Box also has door though which our avian care team provides food (without being seen).  As the birds mature over the coming months, the door on the end of the balcony will be opened.  The birds will be free to come and go as they please, Ultimately, they will leave us and find themselves a home territory.
