Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk enjoys its dinner on the banks of the South Platte River. Out for a walk along the South Platte River after work and I ran into a couple fellow shutterbugs I know. We walked and talked for a while, not seeing anything too extraordinary. On the way back one of my friends notices this young Red-Tailed Hawk sitting low on a tree not 10 feet away and not bothered by us at all. It was clear it had a kill nearby and wasn’t going to leave it. We snapped away and it eventually jumped into the brush, retrieved its mouse dinner and proceeded to swallow it whole on the bank of the river. Pretty neat and fun to see.
