Second Fledges On Friday
Respect These Young Hawks!

Terra Firma

Saturday was a big day at the hawk nest.  The parents started training the fledglings that food would be delivered outside of the nest.  The mother first ate a mouse in front of the fledglings, and then an hour later let them beg and beg until one of them grabbed a rat from her as she sat on a nice level branch.  One of the fledglings eat a rat on the ground and had an encounter with a squirrel, before its sibling joined it.  While all of this happened both parents kept watch.

For the hawk watchers present to see the morning action, it was pure bliss.
