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.
