Raptor Wednesday

Three in number, vocal in youth. (The third is hiding in the lower right.)The apricot/salmon flush to the breast is a sign of youth in Red-tailed Hawks. The feet are signs of raptor.Notice, too, how pale the underside of the tail feathers are.At least one parent was nearby, harried by Blue Jay and Eastern Kingbird. Interestingly, the song birds did not go after the young hawks.SO much larger and noisier than the fledgling #BrooklynKestrels.Did I mention the racket?

One of the birds was feeding. Possibly a pigeon.The other two wanted some, too.

*Subscribers saw an earlier version of this post accidentally over the weekend. Sorry! I entered the wrong date for publication, the 1st instead of the 11th, and when I saved it, it posted. Which meant you got an email post curiously dated more than a week earlier. Sorry for the extra hawks in your email!

But, would-be subscribers, this doesn’t happen often. Why not consider getting these posts in your morning email? There’s no cost. (Some say the gain is priceless.) Enter your email at the top right: you’ll get a confirmation notice.

There are many reports of how extremist Brett Kavanaugh is. Here’s one from his fellow Yalie alum.
