Raptor Wednesday

I can’t recall ever being this close to a Red-tailed Hawk. This is the one I posted about a couple weeks ago.Beset by tiny songbirds, the bird perched no more than 10 feet above the ground.Eyelids closed! That’s something I don’t see often.Those feet!Yes, those feet. Those toes!

    Absolutely terrific. You posted everything I would have wanted to see if I was that close to a RTH.

      Thank you! But luck of the day. The bird was so crowded in with angry orioles that what was one more creature getting close?
