140 (2) Facing Home [P]

The Red-tailed Hawk chick being raised by Bald Eagles (Roberts Bay, BC).


This week was incredibly busy. Though I haven't been back to the nest for two days now, the hawk chick has been doing well. It typically returns to the nest 1-2 x's/day for a feeding. Here it is sitting on a perch facing the nest, resting, before it flew over to the nest tree.
