I looked out my front window and saw this Red-tailed Hawk sitting in the Oak tree nearest to the house. It was eyeballing the bird feeder. I grabbed my camera and took this picture through my living room window. I had hoped to go out on the porch and take a picture but when I opened the door, the hawk quickly flew off. The Red-tailed Hawk likely was trying to see if it could find a small bird, or even a smaller rodent to eat. I think that if the ducks were out, even they would be prey for this larger hawk. It was a beautiful bird! I took this picture on Jan. 6, 2013. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
