These are the last of the "baby pictures." Our kids are all grown and flying around. Rebel went exploring in the vacant lot behind our house and buzzed me on his return to the nest tree this afternoon. He surprised my husband yesterday perched on a tree stump in our yard. Yankee was across the street. An easy way to distinguish between them is their breast feathers. Rebel's has much more brown and Yankee's breast feathers are barely spotted with browns

Here's Rebel in a nearby tree


Rebel swooped up from the tree stump to the neighbor's roof when my husband walked around the car.

This is one of my favorites. It looks like Rebel is asking Yankee, "Are you ready yet?"
