Hawk




Not sure if this is a red shoulder hawk or a red tail hawk? If you can tell please let me know. Not sure what's up with the crow and hawk being this close together. Generally they're fight each other when ever they meet. In the last two pics it looks to be have a bad feather day.

not really sure on the i.d. i'd guess red-shoulder just because of the few streaks on the breast and the lack of bright red on the tail - however, maybe it's a juvie?

and i think you photo-shopped that crow in there! have NEVER seen them that close together, cool, calm and collected! :)

Several years ago I was sitting in my cruiser near a pine grove. A couple of crows were cawing away when a red tailed hawk swooped in, grabbed a crow, and ate it as I and the other crow watched. The other crow, probably a mate obviously was crying out loud..Strange picture there Joe!

Never seen them together...those hawks are such loners. How strange, but cool shots!

He looks a little grumpy in that last shot.
