Red-tailed Hawks

Ithaca, New York is currently very proud to be the home of this cliff-nesting family of Red-tailed Hawks. In this image you can easily see two of the week-old babies and a third is just visible in the middle. Cliff nesting is far more common in the western states than here in the east. Out here these hawks are more likely to nest in trees. Photographed with a Canon 7D Mk II using a 500mm IS II lens and 1.4x teleconverter on a tripod.
