Red-Tailed Hawk

So, what do you do after getting back from a fabulous three-week vacation to some of the most scenic spots in the western United States?

If you’re me, you spend a lot of time inside working on the computer, hiding from the rain while editing the thousands of shots taken during that vacation.

Still, I learned long ago to take advantage of any sunshine we get. Given the choice between editing photos and working on web pages or going birding on a foggy/sunny day, I will go birding every time.

Though unlikely to see as many birds as I did on my trips, I still find joy in checking out a common Red-Tail Hawk swooping by,

circling overhead,
