Or so I think. At first I thought it was an osprey, but what was it doing with the hawks?

Haven't seen them fly this way.

The red tail is really a great bird. Nice captures. They are literally all over the place around here but have yet to get a shot of one. Either far away, gear at home or something.

It's a normal Red Tail Hawk. They have quite a variety of paint jobs and then there are the white and dark morphs too. Nice shots either way.

Very nice shots. Here is an example of a Leucistic Red-TailedHawk I found last year on Amherst Island ontario, taken from a very long ways off due to the property being fenced on private land.

Thanks everybody. I stand corrected. I did have the two mixed up. I found an mp3 of the red tailed one's call and that's what I've been hearing from day one. Reminds me of old western movies. T.D. too bad that I couldn't use ... code.
