It’s that time of year again. The fledglings are flying around and curious as toddlers. As long as I don’t make too many sudden movements or make any noise, they don’t seem to mind me taking pictures at all. Click on pictures to enlarge.
I came upon this lovely hawk this morning. At first, I just assumed she was a red-tailed hawk, but looking at the pictures, I’m was not so sure. I asked the Kansas birding list for help and several folks confirmed that she is a juvenile red-tailed hawk. Click to enlarge.
We spotted this nest a while back. It’s pretty far back from the road and won’t be visible for much longer as the trees become fuller. This morning I was able to get a much better view from a different approach. I should note that I always stay very far back so as not to disturb them. Click on picture to enlarge.
