Wildlife: Red Tailed Hawk

This guy is also a frequent visitor. He helps keep the the squirrel population under control, and also goes after the crows. Crows eat the eggs of other birds.

I took this photo from my back yard patio. The hawk was soaring on the warm, off shore winds that we are experiencing this week. He circled around for several minutes. What a fantastically beautiful bird.


I once had a friend who loved animals and had a beautiful red tail hawk. He had trained it to fly in the countryside and come back to him when he blew a whistle and twirled a wooden lure over his head on a rope. What a great nature experience to witness. He later became a veterinarian.

Wow, that was always one of the sights I loved...watching raptors of various types riding the thermals. They looked so graceful up there, it took my breath away. Thanks, Bobby.
