Remember when viewing these photos, our first concern was that we don't stress the birds.
We always use a blind.

Map & range not to scale nor absolut.

Approximately 20 inches long. The tail has a reddish cast to it. They normally have a pale or white breast, also may have a belly band. Normally perched on the highest thing around, power poles and atop tall cactuses. Eats small birds, lizards, snakes, and other small animals. This is more than likely the most common seen Hawk in Arizona.

We had already viewed the nest site from a much farther distance to determined the nest visiting cycles so when we moved in a bit closer to photograph we would have some idea on how to evaluate weather or not we were stressing the birds.

Reddish morph adult Red-tailed Hawk.

On the tops of power poles is where I find most of my Red-tailed Hawks.
Then, as soon as I get out of the car to photograph them, they fly away.

You won't see a picture like this very often. Two Red-tails on one cross arm.
