My new mascots

These are my shad hawks. They eat all the dead shad I toss out (almost). The male is now trained in the art of taking the dead ones off the surface of the bait tank. AWESOME! They are actually cooper's hawks. The male is sitting on the boat. I waited for 10 mins with the camera ready, hiding behind my f350, but he knew what I was up to. The male has been around for several months and the female recently showed up. I think because Mr. hawk has lots of fish to show her. They are getting very bold. They both hung around in the trees near the boat most of the day. I got some awesome video of me feeding them a couple of dead shad. The female dropped down on the ground and walked over to pick up a shad about 7' away from me. Very awesome.
