Youngster With An Attitude!

Youngster With An Attitude!

Ridgefield NWR, Nov.18, 2014.   An immature Red-tailed Hawk landed on a branch of a toppled tree, maybe 10 feet off the ground and 20 feet off the road, with sky in the background.  This is a frame of him ruffling his feathers in the cold wind.    Canon 5D Mark III, 1/2000, f4, ISO 800, 500mm, 11:58 a.m.
