Waiting in the wind

A Red-Tailed Hawk waiting patiently for a meal to appear in the field below on a very windy day. It always amazes me how birds are able to hang on to the smallest of branches even on the most windy of days. Medicine Bow National Forest, WY.

      1. Late Aug-early Oct. is our peak hawk migration here, with the most coming through in Sept. The most common one we see year round is the Red-tailed, with Cooper’s sometimes checking out the bird feeder in winter (though I’m not happy about that!).

        1. Yes, the red-tailed is also most common with us as well although in winter rough-legged hawks hang around. We don’t have coopers checking out the feeders but we do have a goshawk how prowls the area.
