Red-tailed Hawk Buteo jamaicensis
Waterloo County, ON
15 February 2014
There are still many blog entries to be made from my trip to Ethiopia, but now that I am back home we cannot overlook our native species. It was great to see this mature Red-tailed Hawk yesterday, looking very healthy after enduring the extremely harsh winter we have suffered through this year. We should be getting towards the end of the worst weather and no doubt this bird will be paired up before too long, to produce a healthy clutch of young, we hope.
