Hawk Chicks

I believe these are Cooper's Hawk chicks though I can't be 100 percent certain. I saw the nest when they were close to fledging with half feather and half down. Within six days they were mostly feather and were busy preening all the down clumps out. Both fledged a week from the first photo.

Hawk Chick

7-11 First day I saw them. Solid down cap and lots of down poking through the feathers and most of the breast.
