Two of the three hawks at the Franklin Institute have taken their first flight TODAY! :) One came back with a mouse -- not only a first flight, but a successful first HUNT into the bargain The second hawk is still off exploring, as I type.
The third one hasn't flown yet, as of this post. But one hawk hatched a day after the other two. So maybe that one's not due to go until tomorrow? We shall see.
Mom and Dad hawk helped bring this day about by not bringing food to the nest today. Interesting.
So, do tune in at http://ping.fm/4cEdI and share the fun! And cheer on Hawk #3 while you're at it. :)
