Red-tailed hawk

Buteo jamaicensis


This raptor was perched in a high tree surveying a marsh area.


Mason Farm Biological Reserve


The bird was fairly far away. Three photos were with my digital SLR zoom lens and the last two were taken with my point--and-shoot zoom (which I had not yet tried at such a distance).
