Default Hawks Nest Final

I have been following this Red-shouldered Hawks nest since catching the pair mating in the first week of February. This nest has had a happy ending as the two chicks have fledged. They are flying and eating away from the nest, with the adults help.

Very good shots - love to hear that the babies made it so far. Your pictures with the DA*300 are always capable of creating lens envy - they went a long way toward getting me to look at it. That's something you DON'T want to do unless you are planning on shelling out the money for one - it grabbed my attention and wouldn't let me go.

first and last (with the first being the best) are great.

Never have gotten one raptor shot (in the wild) I'm always impressed on how you can get these shots.

Great work

Ronny
