August 29, 2014: Red-tailed Hawk

This juvenile Red-tailed Hawk was found perched in a snag along the Upland Trail, just west of Jensen Pond.  The photo on the left was taken on 8/26 while the right photo was taken on 8/27.  Note the full crop (bulge on the upper chest) on the 27th, indicating that the hawk had recently eaten.  (It's possible that this hawk is one of the two raised on Park property.) 8/27/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
