Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Well, maybe not quite that far, but the tree was kinda high.  Our west coast correspondent and chief photographer was on wildlife picture prowl this week around San Diego's Alpine area when she stopped by the nest of her favorite Red-tailed Hawks and came face to face with their rather "out-of-this-worldly" looking offspring.

Meet Owen the extraterrestrial (just kidding)

Owen talking to Chandel:  "Take me to your leader!"

Owen and his baby brother ALF--er, Noah.

  1. thanks for the hilarious post! They really are alien babies!! It's hard to imagine that in a short time they will both be fierce looking Red Tailed Hawks. But i will always remember them when...
