Three Fledgling Swainson's Hawks
As I was driving to an appointment this afternoon I noticed two Swainson's Hawks hunting over a prairie dog town. I had a little extra time so I pulled into a parking lot to watch them hunt. Before I could even get parked, one of the hawks flew past my car and into a large pine tree in the median. I looked up to notice 3 babies that looked very ready to fledge! the nest was very well concealed and if it wasn't for one of the parents showing me the way, I would have never seen them!
