Redtail Release

Friends, after receiving a band on his leg, this wild red tailed hawk was released from the cliff above me at Hawk Ridge. Now my flying practice is starting to produce results.  My heart did a thumpy thump when he looked down at me or maybe it was the short hike downhill to get below the release site.   He then pumped his magnificent wings and flew away over  Lake Superior, this is the upstroke of his wing and below is an image of the down stroke. Enjoy til Tomorrow MJ
