Here*s a 12 minute video put together of clips of both Hawks.
At the end you can hear the calling & then they each fly away & you hear their call.

  They seem to have rather light eye color for fledglings,  but in the video they definitely seem more like new juveniles,  and they are calling like them.  Did you see the adults?  When they start getting excited like that it's usually because an adult is around.

ostrich, these two behaved like fledglings.
They both had full crops, & when they took off like that, i believe they were seeing the parents, who i never saw.
It would be cool to figure out where the Nest is.

i first reported on this year*s Barn Swallow Nest at the Co-op Gasbar here.
It had been on my list for a long time to go back & check on their progress but when i finally did, the Nest was empty!
Did i miss the development & fledging of these nestlings?
It didn*t seem like it had been that long, but maybe it was.
Yesterday, i was getting gas again & heard a sound in the peak of the roof & was surprised to see youngsters in the Nest again!

They're really cute, with their scraggly wisps above each eye!

i took Donna to the ferry to see if we could find any wild life there.
We spotted this lovely Kingfisher with fall colour in behind him.
