Lovebirds in the Hemlock

Every spring and summer our hemlock tree becomes the perch of choice for our local pair of Red-tailed hawks. Usually we only see one at a time, but this morning the pair decided that being close was the best thing. They perched neck-to-neck for several minutes. Of course, by the time I had assembled and trained a long lens at them, they had moved apart. Still, the did not appear to be angry at each other. The smaller male is to the right in the picture.
