I have not seen the hawk chick since 6/13/2021 and it looked quite healthy at that time. I have looked in the nest almost daily, and in near by trees as well and not seen it. It could be that I am just not seeing the hawks, but the last time I saw anyone at the nest was 6/20/2021, and that appeared to be momma. The week after the 13th was a horribly hot week with every day over 110 degrees, so I am not sure if this was too much for the young hawk, or if it fledged, and is living somewhere close by. I sure hope the latter scenario is the case!!!

The baby looks to be as tall as the mother when they're both standing there in the nest. Hopefully it tried its wings and flew away. When mother was eating, she didn't share her food with baby this time. Maybe baby was old enough that she wanted it to start hunting. Have enjoyed watching baby and mother - I hope all turned out OK but maybe we won't know (or maybe you'll see it around your neighborhood). Thank you, Bart, for the update.

Like you wildflowers27, I also hope for the best for this chick and family. I also noticed Momma did not share. It could be that the chick already ate, or it could be that Momma needed one meal for herself to keep going. All I can say for sure is that it was a pleasure to be able to record and share as much video of this family that I was able to!!! Thanks for watching and your comments!
