This young Red Tailed Hawk has been hanging around Springbrook's Interpretive center for several weeks. On both Friday and Saturday it killed and ate a Gray Squirrel at our bird feeders. On Sunday he/she was there while our bird banding activity was happenning. It is young and unafaid of people, being more interested in the animals attracted to the wildlife feeders. I have never seen a Red Tail allow people this close.
Notice how it stands on one foot, keeping the other pulled up into its feathers for warmth.
