Red-tailed Hawk at the Point
Found this Red-tailed Hawk at Lemoine Point near the boardwalk in the swamp. At first he was perched at the top of one of the dead trees but when he spotted me he moved to this higher perch in the big tree nearby. When he left the lower perch he swooped on a duck that was sitting in the swamp. The duck put up a racket but the hawk just flew off. The chickadees of course are always glad to pose for a picture.
