Checked on the Hawks

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Today was different weather wise. They say we might get rain. So far it has only been wind, and clouds. The skies were interesting though. I took this pic near the Hawk nest.

Speaking of Hawks. When we arrived Mama was sitting by her Chicks. They are the sweetest birds.

About 20 mins. later the Mom Hawk flew over to a pole not far from me. She just watched me. Made me wonder if she is recognizing me now.

It looked like she was getting ready to take off again

And there she goes. She flew circles around me about 3 times, then went off searching for food.

Both Chicks were watching her for a while.

One of the Chicks laid down, and the other one kept watching, or looking at me. I wasn't sure.

Cow pasture in the same area.

It was time to move on, so we went and checked on the Raven nest not far from where we were.

There are a lot of Barn Swallows, and Western Kingbirds, but they never stay still. I won't give up hope though. A mile from the Raven's nest is a newer Raven's nest. The Raven is harder to see because it is in a tall tree.

That nest is about 5 mins. from our home. When we pulled up there was a Morning Dove in the yard peeping at me.
