Hopes of the young . . .

I have had the pleasure of a pair of Red Shouldered hawks nesting in my yard this spring. I posted a few photos of them earlier this spring, so consider this post an update on there progress. The currently have 2 young in the nest and the parents are quite attentive, as it seems that at least one of them is always on nest protecting, while the other is out hunting for food. The one hunting brings food back to the nest, and starts to feed the young while the other takes their turn at hunting. It's been wonderful to see this from the start. Here's a picture I took this last weekend:
