Today we found a lovely white Red-tailed hawk out in the farm fields in Sidney or .....
I guess it could be called Central Saanich which is not far from Sidney. There were two Red-tailed hawks, one was mature with some red on the tail and the other was younger. This is not too far from the Spunky hawk nest area, perhaps three miles.
You can click on the photos for a larger photo but the photos are not good so I put them in as a collage.
They were really far away and I grabbed the heavy camera with the big lens and forgot that the setting on the lens was not set correctly for that length of a shot so they are all blurry. Grrrr I had not used that camera for a while as I gave it to my husband as it is too heavy for me and I did check all the settings except that one setting on the lens. We went back later but no hawks there then.
His eye has the nictitating membrane showing. I was wondering if this could be Spunky? Perhaps he has a mate.
Then they both flew to this tree and sat in the tree for a while. Perhaps a nest nearby.
