A young hawk and more photos by David Speiser

I asked David to tell me more about this beautiful Red-tailed Hawk and he replied:

it was an immature, no red tail. I was standing below Sparrow rocks, in the field between the rocks the arch and roadway when all of sudden the Hawk swooped into the brush dispersing the White-throats and Starlings. He/she didn't seem to catch anything but created quite a ruckus. It stayed put for about 90 seconds then flew off toward Summit Rock.

Here are a few more photos from this gifted photographer, all taken on Friday, October 17, 2008. More photos at
