As I've mentioned before, we live right next to a nature preserve. I drive past it numerous times a day as I drop off and pick up the kids from school, run errands...basically any time I leave home. I always keep a sharp eye out for any birds or animals that may be around. Early Friday morning as I was driving in I noticed a large bird perched in a tree. I quick went home to get my camera and raced back to get some pictures.
When I was driving by I thought it might be a Golden Eagle because of it's size but after I looked through my camera I saw that it was a Red-tailed Hawk.
I sat there for several minutes watching.
And then it was off!
What fascinating creatures!
