About This Image

red tailed hawk (named LadyHawk) displaying her red tail feathers and her wingspan as well as her nice coloured leg feathers and talons.

Lady Hawk was a falconers' bird, and was trained to food, not prey. She didn't make a good training bird for the falconers as she'd go to people for food, so is not releaseable.

Hi Nancy, so great to see this comment from you, but sorry I didn't notice it before, almost a year ago since you wrote it, and now you are no longer in this life. All your friends miss you. Little did we know that a year from when you left this comment here, that you would be gone.

thanks Steve, - the view is unusual, but thought some might like to see the bright coloured tail feathers, so am glad you did. I was surprised also at their brightness, as when we normally see these hawks, we are viewing them from underneath, as they are perched on telephone poles, or in flight, so didn't realize how bright the tops of the tail feathers are.

Nice photo, Alandra. Those tail feathers look almost like flames!
