On Saturday, I watched three flying raptors.
The closest and most difficult to record, was a falcon: a female kestrel as it left its perch.
While I saw four Red-tailed Hawks, this soaring one was the only one that made for a good image. So, why does it lack its eponymous red tail? It is a juvenile. Next year it will sport a red tail.
The observational gem, however, was this Rough-legged Hawk.
