Three Baby Hawks

We spotted these cuties in our neighbor's yard today.
Three baby hawks hanging out on the trees.
These siblings have lovely tail feathers.
They're bright-eyed curious and seriously fluffy.

Sneaking a peek was a real treat!

A few months back, while we worked at a house near yours, we watched the parents of these young kestrels on feeding duty.

The father would go out hunting, then as he returned, he'd make some noise to get the mother to come out. She'd take the food (lizard, bug, whatever) and fly off while he stood guard on a palm frond until she returned to feed the babes.

It was fascinating. They are such beautiful creatures. And good parents!
