Very nice series! Not a Red-Tailed Hawk though...I'm thinking it might be a juvenile Broad-Winged Hawk. Red-Tails would show a much clearer belly-band instead of a smattering of brown feathers across the front. I'd want further clarification of the species, though.
LOVE this, Cindy!! I'm from Minnesota originally and totally miss them!! We found them all the time on milkweed...watched them change into beautiful butterflies! I hear their numbers are down everywhere...I'm glad you are seeing them!!
