More Hawk Nest Pics

When my husband went outside this morning to water the garden, he saw that mama hawk was in the nest  and he quickly ran inside for the camera.  

When they are all in the nest together, I really don't see how they fit.

Here's a closer look at the feathers.  The markings on the mama are beautiful.  You can see where the baby's adult feathers are coming in.  You can also get a good look at the mama's beak.

Another view.  The babies are not much smaller than the mama now.

Mama stays alert.

Back side of mama.  For some reason this photo turned out sharper than the others.

This is my favorite.  Don't you love the look on little sister's (or brother's) face?


  1. Oh how wonderful...aren't you glad you got these pictures? I am calling Ben to share it with awesome.

  2. Your favorite is my favorite too. I love that dear little face looking directly at the camera. But they are all wonderful! What a gift our Father has given you to have this story unfolding right in your backyard (or your neighbor's ~smile~)!

  3. FANTASTIC pics again! How simply wonderful to get parent and fledgling birds together and yes, that look on the little one's face - they are so characterful. You clearly have a gift as a wildlife photographer - people spend days trying to get pics like these! And you've clearly managed to snap away without disturbing them at all which is quite a feat. Can't wait for the next instalment!

  4. OH! what beautiful and rare photos your husband has taken! I see a lot of hawks around the farm and would really love to have some pics. like these.Thanks for sharing.
    Wishing you a most blessed and Happy Mother's Day, Angela.

  5. Wow that is so awesome- you are so lucky to see them and so close!
