Default Hawk Chicks

I have not been able to get good photos of the Hawk Chicks, with all the clutter around the nest. These are the best I have been able to get to date. They both look healthy.

Ed, That's the thing about natural photos. They aren't always what we'd like to have in a perfect composition but, you have to go with what you get and, in my opinion they are great nature shots!

Great ones. I love the third one. I can almost hear him/her trotting through the bush.

It would be nice if the hawks would consider good shooting lines when picking a nest site, but until that day, as GW said, you have to take what you get. And you have produced some exceptional photos given the difficult conditions you had to work with.
