7/12, Chasing Squirrels

On Thursday, two of the cathedral red-tailed hawks fledglings spent much of the day practicing hunting in the south close. James watched them when the light was good, but I found them still out in plain sight in the early evening.

Both attacked miscellaneous stuff on the ground and made several futile swoops after squirrels. On the few occasion when one seemed to have something, the other had to come see what it was.

After about 15-20 minutes of this, one of the duo disappeared into the trees in the eastern side of the close. The second, though, remained in the pulpit area for some time.
