Just up the road prior to the Bald Eagle shared in my previous post, we first saw a Red-tailed Hawk perched on the power lines running along my side of the road.
We stopped and I photographed the hawk out my car window. The Bald Eagle may have given me its eagle-eye, but not this hawk. The Red-tailed Hawk never changed it’s stare to the field below.
That last photo and the previous Bald Eagle photo were taken a few days ago. Today, while riding down Key Wallace Drive again, we saw the Red-tailed Hawk perched in the same area on the power lines. And again, the hawk never broke its stare down to the field below while I took photos.
I am sure it was watching something more interesting than me both times!
