Red-tailed Hawk

Buteo jamaicensis

I wasn't traveling with my camera when I saw this young hawk on a neighbors wires, so I drove home fast, grabbed the camera and returned to photograph him. He allowed me to walk nearly underneath him. He was a bit messy looking. The photos were the best I could do at twilight, and I'm almost happy with the results.

Here, the hawk actually was stretching his legs after sitting for a long time on the wires. My laughter disturbed him and he watched me closely.
