YOUNG-TAILS IN THE TREETOPS

There were a pair of complaining young Red-tails pleading with an adult in the treetops at Mt. Tabor Park this afternoon.  At one point the adult floated down to the ground and stood about but then left without catching anything.

Finches of two varieties were feeding on mature weed seeds.  And Flickers were both loud and visible in several spots.NOFL ON TRNK1 (1280x960) NOFL ON TRNK2 (1280x960) NOFL ON TRNK3 (1280x960)
