The hardison/downey team working on renovations at Manzanita Hall on the Arizona State University campus recently found a visitor living on the 9th floor of the tower.

A hawk’s nest containing three eggs was discovered during exterior skin demolition.  Because the hawk is a federally protected species, the Arizona Game and Fish Department got involved, and a professional was brought in to remove the eggs.

Watch this video from Fox10 for a glimpse at the nest and read the article from ENR Southwest to learn more.
