Corralitas Drive: Feather Detail

Photo: Gary Vlahakis, May 15, 2011.  Of our nesting pair of Red Tailed Hawks, the male, Mr. Rose, has more white in his back feathers than his mate Cora Rose.   (Click on photo to enlarge.)

We're taking a closer look at the terrific Red Tailed Hawk photos shot by Gary Vlahakis.  Most neighbors will ever get this close to a Red Tail.  Mr. Rose likes to hang out at Gary's house.
