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.
Hi Rick, thanks for your nice comment! Glad you like birds and thanks for visiting my site. It’s good to hear from you.
What a beautiful bird – great close-up shot Dennis.
