Swainson’s Hawks – Patient Parent

This morning September 5, 2017 while human children were starting back to school, these two juvenile hawks were being coached by their parent to fly. The long screech of the parent hawk is like our “Coooooooooooooooooome On Your Gooooooooooooooooooing to be laaaaaate for School!”. The response from her two off spring were “No” “No” “No” or “MooooooooooM” repeatedly of course.

Adult Hawk, I’m thinking MOM! Was far off on a lamp post while the kids (juvenile Hawks) were playing in the playground, swings. The human children didn’t actually go to the swings for fear of a Hawk POO baptismal, or even an attack from a protective Parent Hawk.

In the photos you’ll see that the young Hawks were quite stubborn and Mom flew to the next closest lamp pole, and then even closer. One of the juvenile (kid hawks) took it’s sweet time of two hours before leaving.

About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
