from Ferris cam:

Allopreening sweetly in the warm midday sun,
Up and down the runway-flappercizing fun,
BR’s wiggle wiggle over fluffy fuzzy heads,
And Ezra’s such a handsome guy-lucky Big Red!
Just a hint of favorites, some that you may share...
This is why I donated to Cornell again this year!

by Jacecat

Three little hawklets sitting in a nest, one blew away and left the rest.
One tipped over and hung on tight, but with just one grip, lost the fight.
One little D Hawk left behind, waiting patiently to join her kind.
BR and Ezra, Hawk parents supreme, 

have given us humans beautiful "Hawk Dreams".
