redtail hawk (female)

I almost forgot - when I left the other day, this was who was guarding the gardens. A large, healthy redtail hawk.
[info here: ]
There have been a growing number of them seen in the Boston area, they seem to be adapting to the city. I'm all for it, since they largely eat the otherwise unthreatened populations of pigeons and squirrels.
She looked large and healthy; she can guard / hunt our gardens all she wants, as far as I'm concerned!

Thank you! I missed a better shot earlier today, sadly, as she was sitting atop another tree nearby - but I was nowhere near my camera. ><
Still - good to know she's around and probably will nest and hunt a lot for potential chicks ... hope hope!
