Red-shouldered Hawks Leave the Nest

In spring 2011, our construction team encountered a new friend in the trees near San Andreas Lake…a nesting red-shouldered hawk! To protect the large bird and her nest, the team gave the hawk a wide buffer zone and carefully phased in work under the full-time supervision of a wildlife biologist.

Four fledgling hawks successfully left the nest in late June and are thriving in the town of Millbrae (photo above).

The ongoing construction in the Peninsula Watershed is monitored by biologists and environmental experts. If you have any questions about the Water System Improvement Program, please call us 24-hours a day at (866) 973-1476.
