The Red Shouldered Hawk eyas are doing fine and growing. Easy to view the nest but no way to get rid of all the twigs and obstructions.

The male cardinal was making so much noise I had to take his picture.

Robert - what an amazing photo of your Red Shouldered Hawk with the drumstick.
Yes, the OOF background is a bit 'wiry' but the beautifully lit, composed and focussed subject is magnificent. In the words of Alfred, Lord Tennyson: "Nature - red in tooth and claw".

Thanks Joe. Nature can be both beautiful and brutal. I suppose we have not yet defined the words or ideas to correctly identify and describe it.
Thanks.

Bob

Falcon....methinks it is a merlin; but am not certain.

I make many bird ID errors but my guess is an American Kestrel which is a Falcon.

Thanks Bob. I thought of the Kestrel......and since I did not see the brown/gold/reddish feathers, I thought of a merlin. Looking through my atlasses I think you may be right.

Thanks. They are a very adaptable bird, living everywhere from well north in Canada to the southern reaches of South America with the exception of the Amazon rainforest. They are relatively common here in south Florida, especially in shopping center parking lots where there are lots of sparrows to pick off!

No Day prime or April Foolishness shot today, but look what I found instead!

A99ii + 70-400G (cropped).
Need to go back there soon. I'll hope they stay. In previous years the storks were chased away by birds of prey even before they started nesting.
