My wife captured a whole series of wonderful pictures of a red-tailed hawk perusing our backyard. Here are the best ones for all to enjoy.

All large fish are still accounted for.

She saw the tail raise and knew what was about to happen...

Mr. Birdie didn't like being caught in the act, look at that scowl.

This is where all birds take a bath. All day long, seriously hundreds of baths a day!

Wonderful, I enjoyed that beautiful bird in all the photos! Hawks are one of my favorite birds. Love how they soar and stare w/those strong glaring eyes. They are like watching a jet dive bombing when they spot their prey. Precision instruments, they are!

Beautiful pictures ! We have lots of Red Tailed Hawks in our neighborhood and I have to be vigilant about my 6 lb poodle, as I've seen them kill bunnies :(

Beautiful photos the red tails here are much darker. Mostly brown there is a very famous Red Tail in NYC, his name is pale male because he is much lighter then others.
