Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis)

I took this photo of a Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) in Washington State, USA. If you visit this part of the world, the Red-tailed Hawk is perhaps the most common larger bird of prey that you will see. This species exhibits quite some variation in it’s appearance throughout it’s range in North America-this bird is of the light colour morph.
