Red-tailed Hawk ~ Colony Farm Park, Port Coquitlam, BC ~ April 30, 2017

While walking around Colony Farm park, it is not unusual to see many birds in the airspace. The recognizable figure of a crow, the aerial acrobatics of the swallows, the chorus of chirps as the Cedar Waxwings gather in the trees and once in a while a figure flies by that I can’t quite identify immediately. Thank goodness for cameras! It’s usually not until I get home, when I can see my photos on a larger screen, that I can figure out what I was looking at.
On this fine day I was happy to see a Red-Tailed Hawk! The fellow was nice enough to pitch in my direction so I can see the colour of his tail feathers. He was quite far away and so these images are cropped quite heavily.
