About 5 weeks ago I posted some photos of the baby red-shouldered hawks that have been nesting at the back of our yard. At that time, they were just white balls of fuzz. Not anymore. They have grown enough to venture beyond the nest and now, Mama and Papa are teaching them how to hunt on their own.
As always, click on the photo to see the rest of the images. The full image gallery includes photos of the adult hawk watching near by. The photos of the young hawk are at the end of the gallery. Also, you can see the nats flying around the young hawk, which were annoying the hawk like crazy (as they do to all of us).
