Red Tailed Hawk at my club field, not for the squeamish!

I met some friends at my club field this morning and noticed a Red Tailed Hawk at the edge of the field looking for a meal. As I got closer, the bird seemed to care less about me and continued to concentrate on its prey, which turned out to be a nest of mice. Amazingly, I was able to get within about 10 feet before the Hawk flew off. What a rush!!

Great photos. What a treat. You got to see the ultimate soaring machine and hunter.

You are so lucky. Red Tailed Hawks are a treat to watch and you got great photos.

I love the pic where he's looking back at you like "You looking at me!"
