I didn't do much birding today which is a first! I am feeling kind of rundown and sick of the cold weather. I did see this red tailed hawk on a wire as I was driving around. I was able to get fairly close to it without spooking it.
I love the picture below and wish it came out better. The hawk stared at me for a few seconds before turning its head and looking forward again. What a rush! To make eye contact with a creature as magnificent as this!
