wow Jane,

You'd think they'd recognize those that serve our country and fight for our daily freedoms. The ones who have passed, the ones currently away from family and those who will serve. You'd think at least for Memorial day the topic would be appropriate.

I don't begrudge your cute grandbirdies some print time but, I agree, it definitely should have been another priority.

I'm sure Rebel and Yankee will continue to thrive around the good Medicine of your home and family. Hawks are survivors and I'm sure they're most comfortable with you--their human kin.

Jane, I am so happy to hear they survived the storm. It is so hard to not interfere with Nature and to fight the temptation to run out, gather up the little ones and shelter them inside.

Rebel and Yankee are strong, courageous and have great warrior spirit.

My husband and I have been playing tag with the camera. After a week, we're not sure who took which photo, so these are used with OUR permission.


Momma Hawk in the nest, serving up some green snake. That's Rebel on the left.


A little later that day, Rebel was watching me watching him.


This is what my husband sees each afternoon when he gets home from work.


We returned from Walgreens this afternoon, ran into the house and grabbed BOTH Cameras! Got this shot on the digital and that's Yankee being brave and standing outside the nest

I've asked a few friends to help out with Creek translations for name suggestions. Hopefully I'll hear back from them soon to get the Poll set up.

Our neighbor across the street saw us under the nest this afternoon. He saw the article in the newspaper, but didn't know where the nest was. It amazes me how unattentive people can be. He's been working in the yard all day, and the babies have been standing in the nest and squawking all day. All he had to do was look up, he wasn't 300 ft from the tree.

Our little Rebel is getting bold. He's been stretching out his wings all day, and I so hope I caught it in the photo. It's amazing how big his wings already are. He's also been scaling the thinner branch in the photos. At one point he was a foot above the nest. Yankee was "hogging" the nest today. There is such a difference in their size. That could be due to hatching later, or Yank might be a girl.

A friend came over today and she was so excited to see the babies. After looking at the photos she commented they look much bigger in person. She's right, and Rebel is probably getting close to 12" tall.

Rebel is going to be big for sure. I was thinking earlier today that one of them must be a girl. Wouldn't that be wonderful if Yankee is a girl and came back next year to nest in the same tree?

Having your own Naming Ceremony is going to be so memorable and precious. Those babies are going to go out into the world with a lot of love and prayers under their wings.

Let us know when you will have the ceremony so we can do what you suggest to help you in spirit. The Hawk clan will gather for the "Naming Ceremony".


Walk in Peace and Harmony.

These I took yesterday and today. I'm hoping you can see Rebel a little clearer. Yankee is still hogging the nest.
This is the best one of Rebel so far!



Another good one, just wish Yankee would stand up.

You can't really tell in the photo, but Rebel is at least a foot above the nest. The one with his wings spread is on the other camera. Just a few more shots and then back to Walgreens. Those people love me smile Looking at these photos, they are bigger in person.

I forgot to post this yesterday and it was just too cute not to share. There is a pair of names in our poll - Talon and Keeper and they were living up to those suggested names.

Yankee was sprawled out in the nest and Rebel was pacing around the edge. I watched as his body went forward and down several times and finally figured it out. He was reaching down with his talons to poke Yankee to move over. 'She' was keeping the nest all to 'herself'
