This was taken last summer in Ottawa’s west end.
It was a beautiful day, and we seen some cars pulled over to the side of the road…being a photographer and a birder I now know what that means ‘stop the car, get out of it asap, and have your camera ready’. This was my first experience with a red-tailed hawk:)
