Red tailed hawk on a pole.


Fellow bird photographer David took out to see his "pet" hawk.

At first he saw a no show but finally showed up as we were heading home after photographing ducks.
Buteo jamaicensis
The Red-tailed Hawk has a thrilling, raspy scream that sounds exactly like a raptor should sound. At least, that’s what Hollywood directors seem to think. Whenever a hawk or eagle appears on screen, no matter what species, the shrill cry on the soundtrack is almost always a Red-tailed Hawk.
