Went to check up on the young goshawks and am happy to say the two look like they're doing pretty well. It was a hot day and we could see they were panting along with the conditions. I watched as one swooped down to a bush with a sparrow in it and enjoyed watching the young bird walk around and become distracted by a big bumble bee and the sparrow made the most of the distraction to disappear.
It was a great opportunity and I couldn't choose which pics to upload so here's a bunch. Love their facial expressions even in the heat.
