If I walk out in my yard and stand at just the right place I can get a fairly clear shot of the hawk’s nest.

Once I got as close as I can get and focused in I can see that there are two babies in the nest. So it looks like they had twins.

I took a bunch of pictures as they are so cute even if far away. I will not post them all of course, but there are still a ton.

My wife and I have lived here for decades and visit a neighborhood park frequently. Another walk to the park yesterday and as usual we stop by the small fish pond. We have never seen ducks in this pond before. So we get to the pond and there is obviously a territorial challenge going on here. I did not start filming right away and missed the more dramatic displays. But this was still cool, especially after recently filming the Red Tailed Hawks training the young how to dive bomb ground targets by practicing on the parent!

Clearly, the challenger was not going to have an easy time, but that did not stop him from showing off his assets.

Enjoy another chance encounter with our feathered friends!
