Great Shots: Courthouse hawks update — my, how they’ve grown!

UPDATE JUNE 10: The top two photos show Pastor Carl Galloway’s shots of the young hawks on their majestic courthouse perch during the 2nd week of June, followed by the photos Galloway took less than a month ago. “The young hawks are practicing flying and getting ready to leave the nest. They grew up quickly.”

Original May 22 post:

The LaPorte County Courthouse has more than 30 faces carved into its red sandstone surface. (Stroll around it and check them out!) And sometimes, majestic living creatures decide to roost there to add to its beauty. Pastor Carl Galloway captured these shots and wrote: “Red-tailed hawks are nesting on the LaPorte courthouse once again and there are at least three young in the nest. The young are rapidly maturing.” If you pass the courthouse soon, be sure to look up.
