Red Tailed Hawk

Today was the first day of a two day team-building event that I am attending.

It was a rainy day, so most of the day was spent indoors. That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t able to get a couple good nature shots. The club house at the golf course we were at had large glass windows with a great view of part of the golf course. It was a great view, but what caught my eye was a pair of hawks.

I was trying to get a good shot of one of the hawks as it was soaring just outside the windows.

I was still trying to get a shot of the hawk soaring when all of a sudden it landed on the roof just above where I was standing just inside the window. I pointed my camera skyward.

I then zoomed in for a close up of the hawk and was able to get this nice picture.

We also took a nice walk along tree-lined sidewalks after the rain stopped. The sidewalks were covered with red leaves of different colors. Unfortunately I was unable to take pictures during the walk. You will just have to imagine how beautiful it was :-).

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of this beautiful Red Tailed Hawk.

    That’s so awesome…what do you think drew him (her) to the window. Wild! So much prettier than a wild turkey. I used to love those team building days, sounds like a nice place. It seems like that hawk is looking right at you.

  3. That last photo is really neat – he looks like a dragon…
