Red tailed hawks are one of my favorite types of hawks!!! I think they look very pretty and graceful when they are flying or hunting!

The other day while heading to Guilford, CT from Madison CT on Rt. 1 just off the Madison Golf Course on the very highest Maple tree was a beautiful male Red Tail Hawk. In fact my daughter Kristine has named him Bernard. He is a very healthy male eating very well off the chipmunks and squirrels, mice and other small mammals living in and around the course. Bernard has been staying here since October making himself very comfortable sitting high among the trees here in Madison, Connecticut. Many of our residences have admired him and he has put on quit a show with his graceful flight scoping up his prey of mice and squirrels. On one occasion I was watching him spy a squirrel and he picked him off as clean and graceful as an artist painting a landscape scene, thank almighty God fro such great birds as the Red Tail Hawk.
