Young hawks


Over recent months, I have shown this year’s young of many species from Tree Swallows to White-tailed Deer. Here are the young of two hawks: Osprey and Red-tailed Hawk. 

A juvenile Osprey is still in the nest, but it is learning to fly by facing into the wind and flapping its wings.

This juvenile Red-tailed Hawk still seems to be trying to make sense of its new world.

It lifts off. Juvenile Red-tailed Hawks do not show a reddish tail for their first year.

    Your image of that junior redtail in flight left me speechless for quite some time. It’s beautiful beyond words.
