I thought this bird was a vulture at first when I saw it high in the sky–mostly because I’ve been seeing lots of vultures lately. But when it got closer, it was plainly not a vulture but a hawk.

I think it’s a Red-tailed Hawk because of the speckled belly band, dark head, and dark leading edges on the wings.

This is the sight that caught Sophie’s attention today–a squirrel flicking its tail in a tree.
