Survived the storm

All is fine at the hawk nest despite last night's ferocious storm. Nest intact. Babies fine. Parents attentive. A delicious pigeon got dropped off and the family dug in. Mama fed herself and the babes, plucked feathers. They are such neat eaters, polite, patient. After the meal the babies rested and Mama and Papa rested in a nearby tree. It was a grey, gloomy afternoon. A stream of human neighbors dropped by to check up on the family, all concerned after last night's violent thunder and lightening.
