The Mustangs answered with 14 straight goals.  Story Links “Western dominated the draws giving them many more offensive possessions. We also had way too many turnovers, both forced and unforced. Macon Jeffreys played well in goal but the Western time of possession in our end was way too much to overcome” said Head Coach Joe Nizich. UP NEXT: The Blues will look to even their record on Sunday, September 29 at 6:00 pm at Varsity Stadium against the McMaster Marauders. For more information, scores and highlights on your favourite U of T athletes and teams, please visit www.varsityblues.ca.

That outraged Orr and other regular bird watchers who said in the past Edison had always called the Nature Center and advised officials there before doing work anywhere near the nest. Paul Klein, a spokesman for Edison, said company officials are aware of the hawk’s rebuilding efforts but have no immediate plans to interrupt it at this time. “The old nest was very large and posed a hazard to our equipment,” he said. “Now, since they’re just starting to build it, it’s not too big. We are in touch with the Nature Center about the next steps, but we have no plans to do anything now.” Ray Jillson, one of the “bird walk” guides at the Nature Center, said the hawks’ tower-top nest had been part of his tour for years. He said he has followed the birds’ patterns closely. Red-tailed hawks, which mate for life, will commonly return to the same nest every year unless it has been destroyed, he said. • Video: Hawks rebuild nestWHITTIER NARROWS – Two red-tailed hawks are busy rebuilding their home atop a Southern California Edison power tower, only weeks after utility workers destroyed the birds’ 16-year-old nest. Local bird watcher Lou Orr said he has been observing the two hawks at the Whittier Narrows Nature Center for more than 10 years and recently spotted them circling near the tower. “They’d been there eye-balling it daily for probably a week or two,” Orr said. “But I hadn’t noticed them building until Tuesday. They’re just getting started, but they’re working real hard at it. Some of the sticks still have green leaves on them.” “Well, these two \ have been there for so long, it’s their home,” Jillson said. “Edison has suggested building a platform on a pole, but the problem is, the birds won’t use it. “And many of those platforms aren’t strong enough – those nests get massive,” he added. Native birds of prey are protected, along with their active nests, by the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act, according to Mickey Long, natural areas administrator for the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation. When Long mentioned that last month, Edison officials responded by saying the utility has a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that allows it to remove nests as long as it is done during the off-season when the birds are away. Red-tailed hawks usually build their nests and fledge their chicks about this time of year, Long said. “It takes a few weeks of work to build the nests. It’s a pretty thick structure,” he said.
