Baby Hawk update

I was able to get some better pictures of the baby hawks this time.

Our son in law David said he saw one of the three fly away earlier in the week.

One leaves the nest and goes to the tree limb edges but we never saw him fly.

On Saturday night we had bad storms the nest blew out of the tree both of these babies were on the ground. The one in the nest was hurt. They put them in a large dog kennel until Sunday morning.

They wanted to see if the one that had been flying could fly and he flew away.

They think the one in the nest is the weakest one he is much smaller than the others and does not have all the feathers just yet. Since he is injured they are going to try and get a hold of a wildlife rehab.

A neighbor told our daughter what to do so, for now, she is trying to rehab it. She is thinking it is more scared than injured.

The parents found the one that flew they kept calling out for the babies and that one answered. Right now they are rebuilding a new nest.

Sometimes wildlife needs our help to survive. I have truly enjoyed taking these little ones pictures I hope the injured one makes it.

Baby Hawks

If you listen when you are outdoors you can hear the sounds of birds all around.

You can even learn to distinguish the sounds of different types of birds.

Sometimes you can even hear baby birds. Hawk babies are very loud when the mom and dad are bringing them food.

These pictures were taken at our daughter’s house way up high in a pine tree. There were actually three babies but only two wanted their pictures taken. Lucky I had my 400mm lens with me otherwise there would not have been any pictures.

I am going to try and get a few more pictures this week. I figure these baby hawks are 3-4 weeks old and they leave the nest at six weeks old.

Nature is all around us we just have to open our eyes to see it and enjoy its beauty.
