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:)

    It’s the same bird? It looks so different here! And if you cover the tail and its back on this one it kind of looks like a person standing :o) – or if you only cover the tail it’s like someone sitting on their bottom with knees in front of chest!

  • I love your creative and beautifully strange mind Mui-Ling! if you cover the tail it does look like a person standing:) and like someone sitting on their bottom with knees in front of chest, never even noticed that until you mentioned it:) yep, same bird:)
