Default Fledgeling Red Shouldered Hawk

I took this photo just before this bird flew for the first time. What a cool sight.

JJ, my son has been watching the nest as it is in a tree in his front yard. He lives about 15 miles from our home.

Default Here's a sibling of the first young Hawk

This one is obviously younger and staying closer to the nest.

Wow excellent, Streets! I hope they both grow up to be the beautiful birds of prey they were meant to be.
