It's a Red-Tailed Hawk

Coming back from shoveling out and refilling the bird feeders yesterday, I saw the hawk across the field again, but substantially closer - about 500 feet away - and in much better afternoon light (and no snow). I went in for my camera; when I came back out I started walking toward the end of my parking area, the closest I could conveniently get. I assumed since I was still on the other side of the field, the hawk would stay put, but not so. It flew to another perch about 150' farther on. When I raised my camera, it launched again; I took a "What the hell" picture, knowing I wouldn't get much from a flying bird at that distance.

But what I did get was a good shot of the red tail, which clearly identifies it. Hopefully, since it seems to hunt this area in late afternoons, I'll get more chances and do better eventually.

No doubt about what kind of hawk it is now.
