Here is a red-tailed hawk nest that is in West Lafayette. It is at the top of a power line tower near the Wabash. You can easily see it from State Road 26 at the approach to the Wabash Bridge. Look for it south across the railroad tracks. The picture was taken Saturday May 17, 2008.

Two or three weeks after I posted this I noticed that the nest was gone, apparently blown away in a windstorm. Doubtful that the chicks would have survived. The adult parent hawks kept perching regularly on this tower throughout the summer, though. Maybe they will build another nest this year.
