I originally caught a glimpse of Little Salami high in a tree last March soon after he was born. The nest was made visible because the tree had yet to start developing new leaves.
I pulled over to the side of the road to get a better look, and initially thought it was a nest of bald eagles instead of red tail hawks.
Upon my return with my friend Nelson, who has taken many of the nature pictures on our website, we saw the father circling the field hunting for food for the nest. We realized that despite his great size, he was a red tail hawk, perhaps even Liverwurst's son.
The picture you see before you is a picture of Little Salami sitting on the rail of the terrace that I used to feed his grandfather off of. He is about nine months old at this time and has returned two additional times this winter.
It never ceases to amaze me the amount of nature that surrounds me. I have always considered this a gift.
God Bless you all; Never, Never give up Hope!
