Saturday hawks

My neighbor called me the other day and told me to come over to one of his properties to see some hawk babies. I didn't want to leave the expensive Nikkor in the car yesterday so I dropped by with the lesser Sigma lens instead. Took a couple shots in the midday sun. Never easy.

He said that there were three babies, from my vantage I could only see two. 

He had thought that they were red shouldered but I see no patch in my photos so I am pretty sure they are red tailed instead. 

Body type and chest markings lend themselves to that taxonomic appellation as well.

Not easy to get a decent shot of a bird in full shadow. Do the best we can.

Noonday sun is the bane of photography but sometimes it is the time we are dealt.
