RTH Junior, lands in the back yard
This is an update on the Red Tailed Hawks. They have been very busy, since my last posting about them in May/June. The babies (2) have grown into "junior's" and they are learning all sorts of things. Last Friday, my husband happened to find "Junior" in the back yard, hanging out in the creek and testing his independence. We (seriously) have about 50 photos of him/her, playing in the yard. He/She knew that we were there and that Sweet Hubby was photographing up a storm. He/She didn't seem to mind at all.
As I was writing this, I could hear a big commotion outside in the trees..... and sure enough, "Junior" had found a delicious morsel and was up in the branches, with his catch....tugging, eating, and generally thrilled at what he managed to eat...on his own.
We are having a lot of fun with this..... hope you enjoy seeing these photos, as well.
