Hawk Chicks Get Feathers

This is the start of the fifth week for the Red-Shouldered Hawk chicks. The oldest one is showing a solid covering of feathers on the wings. Meanwhile, we are seeing the adults in the back yard more often, here perched on our songbird houses. The hawks are more likely spying for rodents, snakes, and lizards than birds. They also hang out in the tree above the bird feeders. Again, I think they are preying on lizards that come for the dropped seed.
