    Red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis)

    I see this hawk often on this same branch in this same tree in my neighborhood.

    Taken 01/17/2008 in Frisco, Texas, U.S.A.

    Thanks to palmchat for the identification.

      He's a good neighbor to you, for sure. Not so much for the neighborhood squirrels and rabbits, though ;)

      Lovely photo - thanks for sharing him with us!
