Red-tailed Hawk

April 04, 2023

The Red-tailed is a hulking big buteo (soaring hawk) but is nonetheless shy and tricky to photograph. As soon as you stop your car or roll down your window off it goes.

This one was so interested in grooming that it ignored me so I did manage a few quick photos.

When driving along in the countryside look for the "belly band" which allows for a quick and easy indentification even at distance.
