The red-tailed hawk is a beautiful creature, and my favorite bird. I have seen them a couple of times in the wild, but never had my camera handy. In this case, we were at a NatureFest of some sort in a small town outside of Austin, and there was a gentleman there who rescued injured birds of prey. He had an eagle, several hawks and some owls too. He had actually trained some of the birds and did demonstrations, showing their skills in catching moving objects and things like that. It was pretty interesting and I was glad to have my camera on me that day.
