    It was a gray, overcast afternoon around dusk. I saw a red-tailed hawk in a tree and pulled over, got my camera out of the trunk of the car. I didn't have time to adjust the aperture or check my focus--as soon as I pointed my camera at the hawk it took off, so I followed the bird and kept...

    Red-tailed Hawk

    This hawk was hunting while the mate remained perched high in a eucalyptus tree. The feathers are a bit ragged but that may be a normal molt condition. Comments welcome. The tail feathers look gray but it’s just the angle of the light. Other shutter clicks of this bird catch and show the red of...

    Red-tailed Hawk and a blue sky. Glad it was yesterday cause it rained all day today. Red-tailed Hawks are large hawks with typical Buteo proportions: very broad, rounded wings and a short, wide tail. The most common Hawk in North America.

    Red-tailed Hawk #2

    Red-tailed Hawk This was taken after the Hawk Pic I posted yesterday. It managed to ignore my coffee cup lifting and photo taking but it sure didn't take to my repetitious sneezing from the high pollen and took off so I stood up and grabbed this pic.
  19. Good Morning for me :)

    Good Morning for me :)

    Red-tailed Hawk Brought my first coffee out on my back deck, sat down and looked up and I see this Hawk perched quietly. Thankfully, I never leave my home w/o my camera. Took my first sip and the movement didn't bother it so I slowly picked up my camera and clicked :) One more to follow tomorrow.

  21. Tail Feathers Aglow

    Tail Feathers Aglow

    Red-tailed Hawk — I think this is the male. He and his mate have been romancing in the air and on the perch for several days. There is a little feather damage to the lift wing tip. They raised two chicks last year. Edited to crop, adjust levels, and sharpen.
