I like the post processing here to show its colours.
This is gorgeous, Carol! I captured the same kind of hawk a few months ago perched on top of our phone poll. Stunning bird! I refer to myself as a bird nerd... so I have *loved* looking through your blog. :) Your photos are amazing! So happy that your blog was shared through my 'it's a small world' blog hop today!!
How wonderful to have a resident Red-tailed Hawk. It must be a delight to watch out for him. He looks wonderful against your winter scene.
Thank you all for your kind words of support! I am truly happy that you, like me, find this bird so awesome.
