They are getting bigger, but there are less each day in the big turtle pond.

There might not be as many, but they are a pretty family. I guess that's why they have so many babies - to make sure that enough survive to adulthood. Love the picture.

Lovely family. Are other birds getting them? Certainly not the turtles is it?

Might be hawks if you have any fishing the pond. I saw a red tail going after a Canadian goose chick last weekend but the parents came to the rescue in time.
Great shots.

Had a Red Tail grab a Dove out of the feeder in front of my house one day a few months back and landed in a large pine in the next lot and ate him up. Happens all the time as they are a seriously carniverous bird.
This (bad) shot is the only one where you can see the doves feet sticking up from under the hawk.
