A beautiful day in January with the hawks! Oz, a male Red-Tailed Hawk and Sadie, a large female both were lucky and caught a squirrel.
On a recent hunting trip in South Georgia, these falconers and their hawks hunted together for squirrels, a common prey for the Red-tailed Hawk. The photos illustrate three different hawks (Gracie, an immature female, Scout, an immature male and Heath). If you look closely at the photos, you will be able to tell a difference in the appearance – their size and coloring (you also might see a squirrel, racoon and armadillo!).

Many thanks go out to Bart, the photographer who braved the forests and took these photos.
