The cute little baby buzzard that we named Dweezle after the Missus' sisters stuffed buzzard (named after Dweezle Zappa) is growing up. We go back about every week to see how he's growing. We're surprised at how slow he's growing up and getting real feathers but it gives us more chances to see him. Not the greatest photos as he tends to run away when I get too close or use the flash. It was hard to shoot in an abandoned house surrounded by heavy cover and late in the day after work but it's at least usable.

When we first saw the boy on May 29

And today,

Isn't he precious????

Thanks, the first one wasn't very good. I only had my 10-20 and whenever I'd try to get close enough with it he'd hiss and charge. I was basically holding it his face and clicking then pulling away before he'd peck me.

He is a cute fella. I did get pecked by a full grown buzzard once and it was not fun. I now understand how they can rip a carcass to shreds so easily. Took a big hunk out of my shin. Hope you can keep posting follow-up pictures.
