This magnificent hawk was in a tree by my house yesterday when we went for a walk. Glad I had my camera! The first two pictures are mine, the one below is a stock photo so you can see his true colors. He had a small bird in his talons which you cannot see. He is known as the "bird hawk" since that is what his diet consists of. Note in the picture below, he is on a bird feeder -- they like to hang around bird feeders, to feed on birds, not seeds. I see many Red-tailed Hawks around, but I have never seen this type of bird and felt I had to share, even though my photos aren't that great.
