We had a red tailed hawk on our privacy fence this morning, but by the time I grabbed my camera, he was gone. The sure are magnificent birds.
Yes they can. Several years back I watched one through my office window. He was circling overhead and suddenly dived into the long grass of a vacant lot. When he rose into the air, he had a rabbit that was almost as big as he was.
Nice ones! Those Green Herons are so cool look like two different birds depending if they want to tuck or stretch their neck.
