Observations by Gary Fewless for Green Bay WI (Lat.N 44.51° Long. W 88.02° ), except as noted. For flowers lacking conspicuous petals or sepals I define "anthesis" as release of pollen by mature anthers.

Jan 10 Here's a photo of another redtailed hawk who didn't survive. Perhaps a victim of the etreme cold and not enough food to support the bird's metabolism. Photo by Tom Erdman.
Jan 02 A young red tailed hawk was feeding on a cottontail at the edge of a sidewalk on UWGB this morning, within a few feet of passersby. See a photo on our "photo of the week" web page. The need for food begins to outweigh normal caution.
