On a photo workshop last week I took my client to visit the Hawks in my previous week’s post. My client is an accomplished bird photographer. Well.., I was expecting maybe mom, pop, and the chick I saw on my last visit, but to our surprise, we spotted a whole family of five. Fledglings were taking to the air from the treetops, encouraged in their maneuvers by the parents. What a treat it was to see the adult male, female and chicks perform this ancient summer ritual at this roadside location.
As always, thanks for looking. I appreciate all the comments and compliments. Thank you. G

Happy family ~
Thanks for sharing!
As far as I could tell they looked quite happy. Dad looked a little battered probably from fighting off the marauding preditors like Kestrels and Magpies. Thanks, Elaine. G
