    The picture of Red Tail with the wings in motion has wonderful spiritual energy. "Woosh"...I can hear the wings move the air in a sacred movement of energy in that photograph. It is not often a photo captures sound, but that is what that did for me. Thanks for sharing all of them.

    How did I miss this before... I LOVE RAPTORS. Fantastic to share this Julie! Thank you.

    I have a Cooper's Hawk nesting near my house eating many a pigeon in my yard. I posted a photo when she was immature, but I have gotten some great ones of her all grown up now. There is a great lady who lives in another part of my neighborhood who has a nesting pair of Red-Tailed Hawks living in a white pine tree next to her house. I have been watching them build their nest this week

    Here are some misc. of the mature Cooper's Hawk in my yard (sorry some are blurry) I'll have to get some of the Red-Tailed later, I have just been watching them so far.

    Very cool! My guess is that its a 'her'. The female's tail is "well-rounded, even when folded." Moreso than the male's. But who knows.

    The pigeon guts are a bit gross, but worth it just to have the hawk!

    Thanks!

    Great to see those Jenn. Coopers are such great hawks, there is a pair that works my "hawk feeder" in the back, mostly getting the doves. Can't wait to see the red-tailed.
