Return of the Hawk!

Return of the Hawk!

Visiting the Ridgefield NWR today, Oct. 14, 2015, and noticed a huge increase in the number of Red-tailed Hawks that were hanging around–some fairly close.  I was parked about 30 feet from this perch when this cooperative bird decided to land there.  Nice birdie!  Other than needing a little tidying up in the bill area, he/she’s a good looking specimen.

    Beautiful bird. Thx for your work. My wife and I love the birds. Don’t get on here much as driving truck doesn’t leave much fun time.
