Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawks are common in this area. I saw this large raptor perched on power line (certainly not the prettiest perch) close to my home.

The squirrels in the area most certainly want to steer clear of those talons!

  10. A brilliant bird Tammy, well-photographed. I could do with one of these in my garden for when the suirrels steal all the bird food!

  12. Lovely shots Tammy. Do you ever get a feeling that it really is their choice that the squirrels aren't the only ones who should be careful? We have similar birds in Australia, Black and whistling Kites, who don't mind sitting near you, or hawking near you and I sometimes gt the feeling my shoulders would be a nice perch!
