Your Great Florida Birding and Wildlife viewing adventures start here

While out on a birding trip over the weekend I spotted this juvenile Red-tailed Hawk circling over a wooded area. The Gray Squirrels (not surprisingly) were very quiet as a result! I am always in awe of this big raptors poweful yet graceful flight. They seem to achieve this without exerting much effort. I managed to snap off a few pictures and couldn't help but notice the intensity in the hawks eyes. It was completely focused on its surrounding environment and I imagined it was thinking, "come out squirrels wherever you are!"
