ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – PNM workers are trying to help save some baby coopers hawks, who lost their home.
The bird’s nest was blown out of a tree in Rio Rancho during last Sunday’s wind storm as a PNM lineman worked nearby.
Unfortunately only two of the five birds inside survived.
Wednesday PNM workers and members of the group Hawks Aloft returned to the area and helped install a new man made nest in a big cottonwood and re-nested the chicks.
Crews say as they were working, the father returned to watch over the nestlings.
