Redtails and Redwings

Friends, this young red-tailed Hawk is perched on a birch tree branch in Crex Meadows.  This is about as close as you can get to these birds when they are in their natural environment.  I also have images of him from the front and you can see his white bib and splotched belly band that marks him as a red tailed.  We had some frost last night and temperatures down to 25 degrees F, so fall is technically here. Below is an image of the red-winged blackbirds gathering for their trip to the south. til Tomorrow MJ
