Due dates for both Redtail nests

We're getting close to the expected hatch times for Pale & Lola, and for Charlotte & Junior.

I think the following are reasonable hatch dates for the two redtail pairs, based on the hawkwatchers' observations of when Charlotte and Lola began spending nights on their respective nest. This usually happens a few days before eggs are laid.

Expected Hatch Dates:

Pale Male & Lola -- between April 11 - 15

Junior & Charlotte between April 15 - 19

I know I'm going out on a limb here [so to speak]. But thought you'd want to have a clue.
