A screaming hawk in Springbank

This Red-tailed hawk is often perched on one of the telephone poles which line a gravel road along Highway 8, west of Calgary.  This morning I turned off to see if I could find her.  I did and she wasn’t overly pleased to see me.  As soon as I stopped near her pole-top perch, she took flight.  I felt like I stole this one before she flew further down the road.  I was happy with this image and didn’t want to harass her further so I left her alone.
