Red-tailed Hawk soaring in the sky at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on February 27, 2016
The highlight of the day birding was this juvenile Red-tailed Hawk soaring in the sky at Lakeshore State Park. Even though it was a beautiful day weather wise today, birding appeared to be slow, at least where I looked along the lakefront. A Great Black-backed Gull was the only other bird to note. Images were taken on February 27, 2016.

Beautiful shots. You take a juvenile redtail which one might see any day, anytime and turn it into an experience.
Once again you’ve brought some feathered sunshine into my life. Thanks!
Really nice work, as always. Gotta love raptors.
Hi Jim. Perfect images for people to use to I.D. a juvenile red-tail. Well done as usual. Keep shooting!!
