Red-Tailed Hawk By The Side Of The Road On Cape Cod!


We were driving home yesterday after breakfast and I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I yelled, “Stop! There’s a hawk on the side of the road.” Phil quickly turned the car around and there was a Red-tailed Hawk on the ground about 3 feet from the road. He was kicking something in the leaves. I figured it must be his next meal. All I had was my iPhone so I clicked away. I got a couple of ok photographs. You can see one of them below.

We quickly drove home and I ran in and got my camera, hoping it would still be there. It was and these are the 2 photographs I got when he flew up in the tree, still only about 10 feet from me. I took a horizontal and a vertical. I couldn’t even zoom in as he was too close.

What do you think?
