As you can tell by the above photo I was having to photograph this Red-tailed Hawk from almost directly underneath it. I took these photos at Fort Chaffee here in Arkansas.
Red-tailed Hawk Facts and Camera Settings
The Red-tailed Hawk is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the “chickenhawk,” though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens.
The Red-tailed Hawk occupies a wide range of habitats and altitudes, including deserts, grasslands, coniferous and deciduous forests, tropical rainforests, agricultural fields and urban areas.
