I'm not sure which one this is as it looks like a Red Shouldered Hawk, but when it took flight I noticed a distinct red tail, which leads me to believe it's a red tailed hawk. Can anybody clarify this for me? Here it is first sitting atop a large pine right next to our parking lot at work (100% crop) Then it flew over to another pine (100% crop) Next, it looks like it lost it's head while flying (although I'm sure it was looking for lunch down on the ground) Finally I was able to get it to fly towards me a bit (although it was the middle of the day with crappy lighting and this one has a bit of PP on it) Then finally the best shot of the series, the banking shot. Tall taken with D50 and 70-300 VR. I'll have to keep an eye out for this fella when I'm driving through our parking lot in the future.
