On Saturday, we got to see one of the fledglings hunt and display the skills it will need to survive on its own. It isn't independent just yet, but nice to know that its getting close, especially with the colder weather arriving.
On some other hawk blogs and forums, there has been discussion about these fledglings and their survival chances being from a second clutch. Most of the arguments have been based on conjecture with no real data about second clutches. Before we jump to conclusions, we might want to just take our time and observe these two fledglings and see what develops.
