A pair of wild red-shouldered hawks that took up residence at the Lamar Q. Ball Raptor Center at Georgia Southern University’s Center for Wildlife Education are expecting babies – and you can watch them hatch. While the hawks are not official members of the Wildlife Center and are completely feral, caretakers of the center welcome them and have been watching the pair return for three years in attempts to raise their young. Until this year they were not successful, but now there are three eggs expected to hatch sometime before April 9, said Kirsten Rappa, administrative coordinator for the wildlife center.
