Day 171. June 19.

Day One Hundred Seventy One. June 19.  Picture # 171. "Another Generation".  This young red tailed hawk one of three that were born on Richard Garriott's Lake Austin property this season. http://www.ehow.com/info_8469268_texas-redtailed-hawk.html . There is an all white hawk that has nested on this property for the past three seasons. She has produced two sets of chicks, the last two years with one having normal coloration and one being white. This year she apparently had three chicks and they all seem to have normal coloration.  When I was taking this picture, this hawk's two siblings and its mother was flying above it. There are series of pictures below that were taken at the same time of this young bird. As these birds mature you seldom ever get the opportunity to get this close. Canon Rebel XTI, handheld. Canon 75-300mm lens. Focal length 300mm. f/5.6. ISO 800. Exposure 1/1000 second.
