Red-Tailed Hawk Juvenile Nov 19, 2010

Down at the park today with many of my friends we were entertained by this juvenile red-tailed hawk. He soared around the park trying to find food - at eye level he could be seen dipping and diving for squirrels. He turned left then right to avoid trees. Carol had a brush of feather on her face as he flew beside her. The hawk landed a few times and just sat there preening and watching the squirrels below him. He was chased by the crows and also the cooper hawk on the next page. What a thrill to watch this young red-tail hunt for food. WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
