Not A Crow, But A Hawkor maybe an Eagle!

At A distsnce I knew it wasn't a crow. It was too big for crow. I took my first picture from my car, then got out and walked further down on the shoulder of the road to get closer.When closer I could see a few markings on its breast and the hook in its beak, and I then knew I was looking at a hawk. This is the first hawk |I have seen for months! I think it is a Red-tailed Hawk.
i think i might have interrupted lunch for as it started to leave I could see the shape of something hanging from its claw.
My best photo was my last one as its beautiful curved wingspan was shown as it was leaving. What a beautiful sighting this was! Another lucky day. I love the half moon shape of its wings!

My hunting season red coat for Ruby Tuesday

I sometimes get quite addicted to genealogy and yesterday I located this memorial to my 5th great grandparents; Philip Crouse and Sara Burt. It was in the country at the back of a field alongside the Keswick River so I wore red in acknowledgement of hunting season.Click on the picture to read the story of my 5th. great grandmother's Burt family from Connencitut. quite an interesting memorial stone. Sara Burt gave birth to 18 children!
