Red-tailed Hawk's nest - week 5

July 09, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Here is a final video from the Red-tailed Hawk nest I was able to document:

 

At the time of this recording, young Red-tailed Hawks were about 5-6 weeks old. First half shows grown-up chicks barely fitting in the nest. Second half shows young hawk finally leaving the nest and resting on a nearby tree. At this point you will see two photographs showing an underwing and back feathers. Last clip shows fledgling Red-tailed Hawk eating a chipmunk brought in by an adult bird.

Video and photographs were taken with a Canon 1Dx camera paired with a Canon 600mm f/4 IS lens with a 2x extender at 1200mm
