    Red tailed hawks' courtship display

    I noticed these two soaring lazily in close proximity. I thought they were both holding prey, but it turns out, their legs were dangling in a courtship display.

    (not so) Red-Tailed

    Fortunately, there is another way to recognize Red-Tailed Hawks than by their eponymous red tails. Juveniles don't have red tails (yet), but they do already have the typical "knitted" V-necked vest.

    Red Tailed Hawk

    I often visit this park to take photos. There is ample prey for RTH: ground squirrels, hares, quail among other things. This red-tail seems to favor a low altitude approach from behind large oaks, as opposed to soaring high in the sky. I am alerted to its presence by the warning call of the...

    My chipmunk friends in the yard finally emerged from their burrows to greet spring, and I wasn't the only one who noticed. This hawk passed on his normal perch in the tree over the driveway and sat on a stump at ground level for nearly an hour watching them scurry around. He didn't get anybody...

    Red-tailed hawk up to no good!

    I'm going to have to do a lot more road cruising to find birds now, as I'm temporarily closed due to hawks. After finding the remains of three mourning doves in the yard inside of a week, no, the feeders have to come down for a bit. As I was outside taking them down, he chose to pick on the...
