Dave Thomas and Ian Richardson have been keeping a good watch over the Red-Shouldered Hawks nesting in a tree at Leisure World. Between the two of them (and some “big guns” as they say in the photography community), they’ve caught some terrific photos of these three young birds as they grow up.
Here you can see shots from May 11th and May 25th to compare their size and development.
In one ofthe photos, Dave tells us, “one is moving an evergreen twig, which I suspect is part of learning how to build a nest. The other standing hawk joined in the activity.”
