Couldn't get good shots of this hawk, but I think it's a red-tailed... Forgive me for the poor photos.
I saw two red tails together in the trees next to my driveway. I found what looked like squirrel fur, blood, and wing prints in the snow near the same spot yesterday.
Nesting on tower.
The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America. Red-tailed Hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within their range....
