zitro...no show....just a shot I happened to catch from my corral while feeding horses...the crow chasing him was one of three that harassed the hawk until they forced him to leave. I accidently deleted what I thought was the best shot....a crow had his wings folded back in a dive posture headed down toward the hawk. I felt it reflected how agressive a crow really is. But alas..in my excitement to see the shots, I pushed the wrong button on the camera...and poof....

Konrad..yes I fairly sure its a red tail...thanks..
Hey linda....thanks for the compliment!!!

A couple weeks ago I stopped at a clients house and there was a red tail hawk sitting on the roof.

Oh, You need to post this at the Garden Party for a friend of mine, Andie! She had a hawk in her garage in TX and posted a rather humorous story about it!
Great shot! I use to have one that would sit in a tree and watch me garden........kind of creeped me out because it would not fly away with me right below it......I would go back inside 'cause, well look at those talons!
Again, very nice picture....
