I was driving to work today and was lucky enough to get a good photo op. I'm pretty sure it's a red tail hawk but would love to know for sure.
great action sequence, wow
Yep - Red tail hawk. Osprey has flatter head , white on head, and doesnt have a red tail! Anyway - I have decided that I want to drive your route to work! All I ever see is cars and an occasional misplaced deer.
Thanks for the great discussion everyone! Red Tailed Hawk is the verdict.
It's definitely a Red-tailed Hawk, the red tail and "belly band" are diagnostic. Great shot by the way!
Fantastic pictures. I side with the red-tailed hawk.
Osprey's have a white head with a brown band across the eyes. I would have to say Red-tailed hawk.
Thanks Mark I appreciate the help. Any idea on my latest post?
