Hawks update...

Am a few days late, here, but... here is an update on the hawks and their chicks, dated Tuesday the 25th. (I knew I wouldn't be able to get up there to take pics for the rest of the week, so made it a point to go get an update.)

As you can see, the babies are getting VERY big, and very fledged-out in the wing area, although they still have the fuzzy-white heads. But I think their heads are also looking a bit more like adults... There is also a lot of wing-exercizing going on.

There's still three in the nest, obviously. And boy is that nest getting crowded. (I wondered at this point if they could see one of the adults flying overhead, or maybe even perched on top of the building I was in.)

I was inside, taking these pics through a window, so I couldn't tell if this open-mouthed shot was accompanied by loud crying for the adults to come feed them, or what.

Will try to get an update next week, definitely!

Yay I got the page to load! (Er, my technology curse makes me headdesk)

Anyway, great shots and so glad to see there are still three of them! Were you at the original viewing spot? :::bounces:::

Thank you for posting more. *hugs*

PS. Why yes, I've had coffee. Why do you ask? ;)

No, I was at a window near the stairwell on the 4th floor, largely. Which was located kind of farther back along the building, but still with the necessary view of the tree. Except for the first shot, which was from a window on the 6th floor, but I couldn't stay there long, as nobody was around and it felt a bit hinky.

I can understand what you mean about that floor being hinky. It's rather meep producing to walk by those things in those rooms.

So cool to see the progress of the fledglings. Almost juveniles by now, eh. :)
