[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was staring up at the 10,000 year old petroglyphs (just barely visible in the background) at Medicine Lodge State Archaeological site in Wyoming and didn't even notice these little guys until I turned to walk away. They were around 3 feet from my shoulder. I believe they are baby sparrowhawks but if anyone can confirm or correct that, please let me know. I moved round to get a shot of them with a petroglyph of a bird in the background (which I think would have been really cool) but they flew away.

Hi Katherine,

Welcome to TN! Nice first submission.
Too bad these little guys did not cooperate for your second planned shot...;-( I hate it when a good one gets away...;-)

Thanks for sharing,

TFS Dave
