Thanks, Ted. I was kind of glad to see him. The hawks have been very active in the area lately and not many critters like this come around much anymore.

nice shots, very sharp - were you using the 70-300mm Olympus?

There seems to have also been a killing off of a large number of the ground squirrels and chipmunks in the North East this year, something about the lack of snow and warm temps I heard. I've also heard others speculate that the very large population last year may have caused a disease outbreak that killed them off in the winter. No one is quite sure but there are definitely a lot less ground critters around this year as compared to last year...

Nesting season. Takes a lot of food to feed hawklets. Something got one of our Chippies, or so it seems from the fur tufts. Probably a hawk as well.

Good pics as always. Enjoy them.

Really nice shots Gary; good contrast, color and sharpness. Love the shots, don't like the subject. LOL

(There has definitely been no decline in the squirrel population down here.) I wish something would thin the population. Pesky things who are constantly stealing the birdseed from the backyard feeders, even though there is millions of acorns for them to eat out front from the Oak trees that line the street. They are already well feed from the plentiful wild food sources here, but the lazy things prefer the sunflower seeds.

They also cost me some big bucks to repair my lanai screens. One day I made the mistake of leaving a bag of birdseed setting on a chair in my lanai. The squirrels saw it and ate thru two different screen panels, and came inside and had a feast of sunflower seeds. A very expensive mess. (There is no hunting allowed in my subdivision, or I would go buy a rifle just to kill those pests.)

Huh? Burmese pythons don't eat squirrels?

Great shots Gary, very sharp.
Steven, Air pellet guns don't make noise and they are very effective.
