Red-Tailed Hawk

A few weeks ago I saw this hawk while I was on my way to work one morning. Since I had my camera with me I figured why not try to get a photo?



This is a red-tailed hawk. They are the only large hawk species that lives around here. I think they're territorial, so I see this particular hawk quite a bit near my house. They seem to have adapted quite well to urban conditions. There's one that I see often perched on lights above one of the busy highways in the Dallas area near my workplace. I guess there are lots of rats and mice to eat all over the place!
