To say these hawks "know" us is really an understatement. I've been helping at a friend's house and got home around 7pm. Our dog always whines and yelps when my car pulls into the drive.
The dog started whining and both of the young hawks chimed in squawking. What a Welcome home! All three were letting "Dad" know "Mom" was finally home.
My husband saw Yankee finally take a few tenative flutters today. Rebel has been exploring the nearby trees but always returns for meals and bedtime. It won't be long!
