PIC OF THE WEEK: 07/02/10 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2010 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-tailed Hawk

(Buteo jamaicensis)

Where: Richmond, VA • Brook Road

Notes: When I first saw this bird perched in the tall pine behind the shopping center, I assumed it was one of the adults that occasionally sits in that very same tree (SEE: Pic of The Week #22, 2010). But much to my surprise this bird turned out to be an immature Red-tail. This excited me because it most likely meant that it was a successful fledgling from the nearby nest. It sat fairly still for a little while, but eventually turned and faced my direction. It called a few times as if it were seeking the attention of one of it's parents. With no answer to its call, it turned its attention to movement on the ground, perhaps a lizard in the grass below. Suddenly it leaped from the tree, half opened its wings, and dove to the ground just in front of me. It grasped and poked at the ground, but I never could confirm that it actually caught anything. This seemed to be more of a youthful practice instead of an actual hunting attempt.
