We were driving around in the south St. Louis City area when I saw this Redtailed Hawk sitting on the arm of the cross on top of a church on Morgan Ford Road. This is in the middle of a huge residential area so this hawk has adapted to the urban environment. There are lots of rabbits and squirrels in any area like this one and the hawk is probably the only natural predator they have to worry about.
This is two images, one a closeup of the hawk and the other a full image of the cross on top of the church. Both taken with a Nikon D90 with Nikkor 300mm lens on auto. The two images were combined using layers and the opaque feature of Photoshop.
