Red-Tailed Hawks Again

I've started bringing my camera along every time I go to the grocery store on the off chance that I might catch a glimpse of the juvenile red-tailed hawks on Alewife Brook Parkway. I got lucky today — they were posing for the cameras. No flying yet, though the committed birdwatchers said that the two older ones have started stretching their wings and hovering over the nest. They certainly look like they're thinking of taking the plunge.



Update:
Here are some videos of the nesting pair (Buzz and Ruby - the chicks are Lucy, Larry, and Lucky) and the chicks' early days:
