Redtailed Hawk On My Back Fence


  1. Isn't he (she?) just gorgeous!!

  2. Very beutifull hawk. This is actually a young coopers hawk. It's an acipiter or true hawk (the color of the eyes and its rounded tail give it away). Much harder to spot and even harder to get a picture of, as they are very flighty. The only reason I know this is I am a Falconer I have spent many a day looking for birds like this one. Great job and great picture.


Thanks for peeking through my camera lens with me.
