Stretching his wings

01 RTH Chick 2015_

Last year I found out about a Red-tailed hawk nest that was close to my house. There were three chicks in it last year and they were fun to watch. Well this year they are back and they have three chicks again. They grow pretty fast and you can see one of them in this photo stretching his wings. One of the other has its head poking up and the smaller one is hiding. I imagine in a couple of weeks they’ll be big enough to go out on there own.
