I agree with the others. Very nice flight shots. Hand holding does have its advantages some times, doesn't it?

It's good to see that those red tails are building up and doing well. I gotta swing by there some time.

Cool flight shots. Did you see where the nest is located. Would be a great photo op when the young are born and take flight for the first time.
