Red-tailed Hawk, Route 17, Rockport, Maine, 11 January 2018.

Red-tailed Hawk.

Thaw today. Slushy snow, but not hard walking. Big breeze, but not too cold. Heard two birds but didn’t see a one. Had to make a trip to Portland.

Thought to bring my camera, though, and just as dog and I headed out of town, I saw a handsome Red-tailed Hawk perched along the highway, surveying a field emerging from snow. Pulled over and got a shot or two just as it circled away.
