Red Tailed Hawk

Friends, this beautiful red tailed hawk  is in hand at Hawk Ridge on a Saturday morning.  Lots of people around so he is a little excited which is why his tongue is hanging out.  They have a little tunnel on the back of their tongue which helps them to breathe better when eating or when excited.  The images below show his beautiful red tail and his outline while in flight. Tomorrow i will show this bird as he is released back into the wild. til Tomorrow MJ
