Red Car Property: Red Tailed Hawk's Hunting Ground

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 20, 2012, 8:07 AM.  Most any day, you can see Red Tailed Hawks hunting on the south end of the Red Car Property.  This one looks like an adult, as opposed to the hawk seen on July 10, 2012.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)
