I photographed this using a Canon 7D with a 100-400 mm. Canon lens.
This was photographed near Appleton,Wisconsin on 3-06-2013.
This is a very large Red-tailed hawk. They will fluff themselves out in the sometimes long wait for for but in this case i think it is just a large hawk. We are blessed to have such beautiful birds amoungst us and should never take that for granted. These birds like many others get along just fine living amoungst man.
