Today I moved some baby birds in with the older ones. This is the baby Swainson's Hawk, PEABODY, down below, with the slightly older Swainson's , HUDSON, flying toward the perch where the young Red-tailed Hawk, MINER, is sitting. Note how PEABODY is gazing skyward as HUDSON flys overhead. They are all flying just great and getting stronger by the day. I don't think the youngest will be ready for the long migration they make to Argentina but the others may just be ready. Not the redtail of course, he'll be released around here.
