    Default Life in the Nest of Red-tailed Hawks (Includes Feeding)

    Found this nest of a pair of Red-tailed Hawks and a couple of chicks. Their menu is usually high on the small rodents called voles, and did get a shot of the male bringing that item for breakfast. I was glad that the nest was down in a valley, so had a nice green background of grass, instead of a stark white sky that can so easily goof up exposure. Long shots and very windy, but I really enjoyed getting these.
