These photos were taken at Fort Hill yesterday and I thought it would be fun to show how easy it is to miss something as big as a hawk….the bird fits into the stone wall profile pretty well.
Here is a picture from a different angle using my zoom….
And here it is again, in silhouette.
This is the same young red tail but this time it is perched on the cedar. People walk right by big birds in trees all the time….
The hawk flew off shortly after this photo was taken and landed in the field nearby where once again, it was well enough camouflaged that quite a few people walked right on by without seeing it….
The moral of this story is….check out those tree tops and scan the landscape for odd shapes!
