TY for sharing these nice videos. Looks like the osprey chicks are doing well so far.
The juvenile hawks are regularly beautiful visitors at the Carlo nest in the autumn.
You're very welcome! I started adding background music to the Port Lincoln videos because of there being no sound, otherwise. I hope it is pleasant for people to hear.
The Osprey chicks are growing fast and I understand there is sibling rivalry going on. I know I have seen some people uploading videos that say there is fighting going on but I haven't seen it, myself, yet. Soon, they should be past that stage, I think.
I really love the Red-tailed Hawks that are coming to the Charlo nest right now. The one who screamed has to be a female.
Well, she's huge. Much bigger than the other one, from what I can tell.
I joined a raptor ID group a few years ago and one of the men in there took me under his wing, so to speak. He is one of the best known authorities on Hawks in the USA and I am so honored. He has talked to me via private message several times and we talk about everything, not just Hawks or birds. He and his colleagues developed a wonderful app for mobile phones to help people identify Hawks and Eagles. I will post the link to HawkWatch in here and anyone who wants to visit the site can do so. I can personally vouch for him and his associates as they are top notch in the field of Raptors but especially Hawks.
I got the app from the google apps store and it's free plus there are versions for both Android and also iPhones. Apps are on this page. https://hawkwatch.org/blog/item/1164-ra ... p-now-free
Have fun, everyone!
