Two juvenile Hawks – so very beautiful.

Mark Simkins photographed a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk recently. They are hawks of the forest, hunting prey such as frogs, mice and snakes.

And Richard Kuehn photographed a juvenile Northern Harrier. They fly low over the land hunting their prey, small animals.
