Young Hawks Learn to Fly
The family of red-tailed hawks nesting in BBG’s Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden this year has a milestone to celebrate—the young have fledged! Birder Ann Feldman has been observing and photographing the nesting pair and their offspring since spotting the two downy babies in their nest earlier this spring. Now the young birds have acquired juvenile feathers and have been spotted flying to two white pines near their nest by the narrow part of the pond. Here are some shots of them in action.
