Red-tailed Hawks

Like Tom, I participated in the Audubon Christmas Count last weekend. I tagged along with Tim, Madeline and Bill to cover Section 2. We also had 21 species, if you count the goldfinches that came to my home feeder. Madeline spotted this pair of red-tailed hawks. Our finds:

Blue Jay, Cardinal, House Sparrow, White-throated Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Crow, Raven,
Wild Turkey, Blue Bird, Red-tailed Hawk, Chickadee, Junco, Tufted Titmouse, Downy Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Mourning Dove, Rock Pigeon, White-breasted Nuthatch, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Starling, American Goldfinch

    Beautiful photos Pat. How nice of the hawks to pose for you! Maybe next year I should do a Christmas count of my own of swans!

  2. We did CBC on the 19th here in Rapid City, SD, counted many
    of the same that you did. My find of the day was a Great Blue Heron
    that was snoozing in a tree on the golf course I cover. I am not
    sure which one of us was more startled! I have never seen one here
    this late in the winter, we did the happy dance when we added to
    our count. Merry Christmas from a transplanted New Yorker.
