H & H Update

SDP 3-20-12
I managed to check on Henry and Henrietta yesterday. Henrietta was holding down the nest, so to speak. You can see her one eye peering out, observing what's going on in the neighborhood. Isn't she cute?! Even with my binoculars, I couldn't see any baby hawks moving around; however, I noticed a modification to the hawk home decor: fluffy white fuzz plastered on the outside.  See it?  That very well could be baby red shouldered hawk fuzz!  While Henrietta was in the nest...

...Henry was in a nearby tree (with direct line of sight to the nest) enjoying a mystery snack and showing off his razor sharp claws.  I'm keeping my distance and being patient. Soon we'll see the little ones!

Yes, I don't think there's much that would win out over those talons and also that beak. He really is keeping an eye out for his family there..You can see where that expression comes from 'keeping an eagle eye' on something hey!

I'm just amazed you are able to get so many great shots of this little family ... and I'm very much looking forward to the wee ones!

Great shot of Henry. What size lens do you use?

I am so excited, I am twitching with anticipation. (Love your Henry portrait.)

This couple has many admirers waiting for the coming out party.

I love the fuzz on the sides. I found a little bird nest once that had a cigarette filter inside and a piece of white ribbon!
