Here we have a juvenile Red-Tailed Hawk. It is identified by the two-toned upper-wing pattern of darker brown and light brown color and also by a "V" shaped white highlight on the back. The fence where this activity takes place is below the ridge of a long hill and consequently it is filled up with a very dramatic winter white.....i would like to say i planned that but it was a good location for me to see him and a bad one for him in which to hide....however i do recognize a good outcome when i have one.....lol......cheers .....Dave
