These are a just few images that I have edited taken since August of Red-tailed Hawk juveniles on Antelope Island State Park.
The juvenile Red-tailed above was just coming in to land on a rocky out cropping, the white wash is a sign that this rock is used as a perch often and not just by the Red-tailed Hawks. I’ve seen American Kestrels, Chukars, Rock Wrens, Western Meadowlarks and more on those rocks.
Even though the young hawk is small in the frame in this image I like it because of the bird’s shadow falling on the rock below it.
This immature Red-tailed Hawk was looking at the rock it would soon perch on as it flew past me.
This Red-tailed juvenile was just lifting off from the dark rocks when I created this image, the talons on the bird’s right foot were still touching the perch it was leaving. This frame shows how long the legs of these Red-tailed Hawks actually are.
