Thanks, Morris. Yes, the squirrel made it to safety. The juvenile hawks are not stealthy enough, yet.

Wonderful array. Any idea what kind of bird they caught? In the later image it appears they had a small rodent too...

Thank you! Not sure what type of bird it had caught. There are quite a few House Sparrows in the area, as well as various Warblers that migrate through during Spring so I suspect that's what they would catch. I have also seen them eat Squirrels and small Jackrabbits.

Those are a beautiful set. You really captured some great shots. I had the pleasure this year following a family of Coopers hawks and ah a wonderful time watching four young ones grow up similar to you. Well done.
