Red-tailed Hawk!

As kryptonkay pointed out today, you never know who’s going to show up at the birdbath. Like this guy (or gal): a beautiful adult light-phase Red-tailed Hawk. Umpteen photos were taken (though none by me; I’ve been very busy lately, and my birdcam obsession has suffered).

Anyway, check out these awesome photos, and thanks to the following photographers: idbirds (who got the honor of the first shot), kryptonkay, lal, and kellychitwood. Congratulations, all of you!

P.S. Craig has posted another image of the same bird on his blog: A surprise, first thing in the morning, right outside the window.

    I was so excited to move over to the birdbath and see him standing there. I snapped pics right away but deleted the first three to get closer shots. I may of deleted the first pic taken but I wanted to get the best pics I could. I’am so happy so many people got such great shots! I emailed Craig’s blog and he told me he named him “Butterball” That’s perfect because I commented on one of the pics he looks like a turkey. Good pics everyone !

    I felt quite honored to be able to catch a few shots of him. Beautiful!
