Red Tailed Hawk

Mary spotted this red tailed hawk and its nest in a grove of trees next to a local highway. I tried a couple times to get pictures with a point and shoot. Unfortunately, I couldn't get close enough to get decent pictures. I was able to see one chick poking its head out of the nest on one attempt. I went back tonight with the Nikon D90 and the big lens. The hawk was off the nest and I couldn't see a chick this time. I'll keep trying.

Now, that's a predatory look.

Actually, it almost looks short-sighted, peering over non-existent specs'!
