If you've ever wondered what hawks eat for dinner, here's a photo. These two hawks perched in a tree across the street from my house. One has a nice, juicy squirrel clutched in its claws.
I assume these are red-tailed hawks until I know otherwise. Lately, I've been looking up more and noticing a lot more hawks in the neighborhood. We spotted one on the roof of a nearby restaurant. Driving home I saw one at the top of a pine tree. My oldest was looking at one through my binoculars and saw it screech.
This is all a great build up for our upcoming trip to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary.
