Not a particular great image in terms of composition or quality but one that I think is kind of fun – and educational.
It isn’t often you will see these two types of raptors hanging out together but I was lucky enough to see them on the way home from work one day last week. While the hawk gave a few dirty looks at the eagle, they were tolerant of each other.
This image is also does a nice job of showing the size difference between a red tailed hawk and a bald eagle. Bald eagles can be up to about 3 feet long and have a wingspan in excess of 6 feet. The smaller red tails top out at about 2 feet in length with a wingspan of 4 1/2 feet. Quite a difference!
