Hawk Swoop

Untitled
Well, I'm starting to wonder what's going on at the hawk household. I've stopped by several times recently and haven't seen or heard any little hawks.  Not a peep.  I'm close to being concerned.  Maybe the white fuzz I saw plastered to the nest wasn't baby hawk fuzz after all.  That being said, both Henry and Henrietta seem to be doing okay.  Henrietta isn't leaving the nest anymore (at least not when I'm around).  As for this pic, that's Henry soaring out of the nest.  I was thrilled when I realized Henrietta was in the shot watching her man taking off to hunt for dinner.   A nice family portrait.  (Now, we just need some baby hawks.)

What a great shot! I had to look twice to see Henry at first. That is sooooo coooool!!!!! If Henrietta isn't leaving the nest, maybe it's close to hatching time? The babies make a lot of noise at feeding time, so you'll hear them eventually. Mama looks so concerned. Wow, they are awesome!!!

Did you duck? Wow! No babies...well, they could be hidden down in there, right? Maybe they'll pop up and surprise you one of these days.

Keep checking, SRQ. If Henrietta is chained to the nest, maybe hatching is near!

I was a little concerned that he was swooping to go after you!!!
