i'll try to keep this updated. eggs need to incubate for 3 weeks. information i think is correct is they are fed by both parents and fledging occurs at around 4 weeks after birth. i think they run around on the trees for awhile before they are fully fledged. that's the time i'm waiting for.

here's mom getting into the nest. if you look carefully you can see a light blue egg.



do you think she knows i'm there??



while i was taking these i had another visitor. this red shoulder hawk i see quite often. he'll come in and land in a tree and ck to see if dinner is around. i hope he's not thinking of eggs or chicks.

roger , how you and scott post the handholds you take are a mystery to me.
both of you need to start a thread about technique

Roy - these are really wonderful, do keep updating us as the eggs hatch and the babies grow up.

I'd second a lesson on techniques handholding long lenses. The one thing I've discovered on my lunch hour wanderings is that I'd never make a bi-athlete (cross country skiing and shooting). I find that rushing to the track or the botanical garden as fast as I can walk doesn't help my photography skills at all. How do they do it?

H,
the hawk was handheld. braced against a small limb. 10 shots of 2, 5 shot bursts. it's the only one i kept but still not good enough to print.

i wasn't able to get to the nest for a week because of the weather. when i got back the babes had hatched. these first 3 were with the A300+1.4x TC, tripod, 2sec.







there were taken handheld with a M42 vivitar 200mm+1.4x TC, at f5.6







can't wait till they are running around. found out there were 4 of them.
