Raptor Wednesday

The sheer intensity of a raptor’s gaze.

This Red-tailed Hawk was hunting… lizards.

I have seen American Kestrels successfully capture and eat the local lizards. This big buteo didn’t have any such luck.

I think this is the same heavily marked bird, seen here a day later nearby.

Kestrel reception is good, with some interference by Blue Jays.

And Fish Crows.
