Red Car Property: Stuff You Missed This Year Young Red Tailed Hawk Practicing Take-Off

Photos: Diane Edwardson, June 18, 2013, 9:05 AM.  Sometimes you just get lucky. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Photos above were shot from the south end of the Red Car Property at Corralitas Drive.  The Red Tails like to stalk squirrels & gophers from the telephone poles on the slope, high above the meadow.

June was a busy month for hawk sightings, in the nest, freshly fledged, first flights, unique hunting skills & even interspecies encounters. 

Stuff you missed this year: we shoot & collect tons of photos.  So we try to wrap up the year with some interesting ones we never got a chance to run.
