there is a hawk family in my yard and I hear them every morning and have even seen them a few times. They are so cool. They have been here for years I think. So I have known hawks are in the vicinity and have seen them before but this is the first time (at least that I can remember) I have actually seen the babies. The other day I saw the parent (mommy or daddy idk which probably mama hawk) and 2 babies fly out of the yard one at a time and heard them a few times so idk it must have been a hunting lesson or flying lesson or something. They babies are pretty big now and obviously can fly now but they still have their immature baby coloring so I don't know how old they are. And the babies have definately mastered screaming now (so they can scream at mom and dad like they did the other day when leaving the nest, and scare other birds like one baby did when leaving the nest on the same day haha lol) although it's not quite perfected yet, theirs is more of a scream while mom and dad's is the typical high pitched hawk shreik so babies still have a little bit of work to do on the sound of their scream/shreik although they definately know how haha lol. Anyways it's so cool to see/hear the hawks and their babies and see them flying around and stuff. It's so cool that they are here and it's awesome when you see them fly out and/or circle and hear them calling to each other and stuff. It's so cool when you see and hear them do all kinds of hawk stuff like flying, circling, screaming, perching in trees, hunting/eating, etc. It's just so cool/awesome. And of course its also pretty cool to know you are helping out the hawk population and witnessing/seeing the next generation of hawks being raised right in your front yard, that's pretty amazing. I am pretty sure they are Red-Tailed Hawks, in fact I am like almost certain cause when ever you see hawks around they are often Red-tailed Hawks. They are so awesome and amazing, they really are truely beautiful and amazing and intelligent and graceful creatures and I just have so much respect for them now more than before I guess. They are just so beautiful and graceful, and the way they just soar through the trees and glide with ease is just breathtaking and simply amazing/beautiful. And in fact I can hear them right now as I type, I really need to get a laptop so I sit outside and hear/see the nature and hawks while I type so I can multitask haha lol. Of course the other animals and birds and wildlife is also cool and amazing and stuff but hawks and birds of prey are just fantastic. Sorry I am going on and on about the hawks and stuff, I just think they are so cool. Does anyone else have hawks and/or other cool wildlife including birds (they are wildlife too)? that would be so cool. Please feel free to share and comment and stuff. thanks.
