Red-Tailed Hawk, Colorado

I love how this bird is flying directly towards the camera, and is just about to grab the branch!  This red-tailed hawk shot was taken during a workshop on flying raptors in 2016.  She’s a captive bird, usually used for educational outreach.

“Red-tailed Hawks are large hawks with typical Buteo proportions: very broad, rounded wings and a short, wide tail.  The Red-tailed Hawk is a bird of open country. Look for it along fields and perched on telephones poles, fenceposts, or trees standing alone or along edges of fields.” — Cornell Labs
