I found this juvenile Red-tailed hawk perched on a treetop west of Bragg Creek facing towards me. As always, I hoped for a launch in my direction. Sometimes it happens, this time it didn’t. I kept tracking the bird as it flew away and when it banked gently to the left I squeezed off a few frames. I was very lucky to catch this one with a clear shot of the eye which elevated it considerably. The Red-tails are returning in droves to southern Alberta now – I am looking forward to seeing them much more again.
