Red tail Details

Friends, this redtailed hawk is leaving with his new bracelet on his leg.  Those talons are pretty fierce hunting weapons and the image below shows a closeup of these sharp tools that keep him supplied with food.  You can see the dark patch on the wing rib and his dark belly band that mark him  as a redtail hawk. til Tomorrow MJ

  1. those talons are surely lethal weapons. He’s a beauty. wondering about that bracelet also.

  2. Awesome angles! Do those bracelets ever get too tight for the bird as they grow? (I worry about everything!)
