Default Hawks Nest - New Chick

For the first time I saw evidence of a chick in the nest. I could not tell if there was more then one, what I saw was too small to expose much above the edge of the nest. I observed one adult catch a snake and return to the nest, then begin feeding a chick. Momentarily the other adult came to the nest and left. The Hawk feeding the chick went through a long feeding, then flew down to near where it caught the snake and fed itself.

Great catches with these shots. The last one is especially telling - powerful legs and back stretching and pulling at that snake...
Thanks for these!

Poor snake. On the other hand, hawks are fun to watch and it's nice to think of one more in the world.
