Redtails at Morning, Creatures Take Warning

A red-tailed hawk looks down while perched on a saguaro on the Marcus Landslide Trail in McDowell Sonoran Preserve

My goal is to photograph every animal on a saguaro, I can now add red-tailed hawks to the list! This adult was keeping an eye out for potential prey moving about on a sunny winter morning in the Sonoran Desert. Hard to believe this is the same species that I watched so often on rainy winter mornings in the Pacific Northwest.
