David Liebl, on his walk in in Bill's Woods on May 24, spotted this proud Red-tailed hawk. He observed: "Chipmunks, while predators of song birds, are themselves predated upon by hawks, owls and crows. This Red-tailed Hawk is likely procuring food for a nest of hungry chicks somewhere near to Bill's Woods." Perhaps this is the same hawk that Glenda Denniston spotted with a toad in the previous blog.
