JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) - A climbing area at Joshua Tree National Park is open again following the flight of at least two baby hawks that were nesting there.

The San Bernardino Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1JJa1dP) access in the area had been restricted by the park since March 30 to protect the red-tailed baby hawks. Park officials believe the two chicks matured to adulthood and left their nest.

Park wildlife ecologist Michael Vamstad says this is the third consecutive year red-tailed hawks were able to successfully mature in an area near the center of the park called the Towers of Uncertainty.
