Red Tailed Hawk


We were leaving the Richfield Farmer's Market this summer when we spotted this hawk. He really found a regal and lofty post to hunt from.



This little bird was sitting on a near by branch. Do you know what he is?





An itch or a scratch.



There's only room for one foot hold at a time.



What an intense and beautiful raptor.

P.S. Be sure to head over to my new writing link. The Chorus of the Crows You can follow my path to publication from the very beginning. And if you are a writer (and many bloggers would consider themselves as such) or know of an aspiring or seasoned writer, please share this new link. I'm hoping to highlight guest writers that might have some good tips to share about their own journey.

Very nice shots - I often think that birds of prey must have a sense of landscape in their brains - they do like a regal perch!

Cool hawk studies... You were as patient as he is, snapping all those behaviors. That little bird must have either been very brave or very foolish. It's good that you are sharing your writers journal .... It will help a lot of bloggers!

I haven't seen many red-tailed hawks this year, which is strange. Lucky you!!

NC Sue said...

They're so regal, aren't they? And you've captured him well!

These birds of prey are my favorites. I like cardinals, finches, woodpeckers, etc., but nothing embodies flight like hawks and eagles. Very nice image.
