Red tail showing some leg fuzz

Luckily this is a male red tail because his legs are pretty furry. This is the same Red tail from the mating pair. He came right in and sat on a pole 10 feet away( future post) but right now is the red tail hovering and landing. I think they are my best Red tail shots. Tell me what ya think!

  1. Excellent shots. You are fortunate to be about when he wanted to land there. I am never that fortunate since my territory is confined to what comes and goes in my backyard.
