What a great find Steve! Excellent images all around too

Is that mom or dad squawking at you? Excellent focus.

Don't know if it's mom or dad. It was upset. I had to dump a bunch of images--I had the shutter speed at 1/500th like a dummy. 1/1500th would have been so much better!  I realized how quickly their heads move at 1/500th!  We didn't know what type of hawks we were looking at until we heard that hawk sound that's in every Western. We watched it from a dot in the sky to right on top of us in no time. This trip was encouraged by my wife who heard a rumor that there were Caracara in the area -- no way.  Turned out nice though.
