This pretty fellow attracted quite a bit of attention at Radnor yesterday. He was in no hurry to leave his perch on a branch above Otter Creek Road, giving all walkers, and even some of the rangers, time to observe him. They said he was a red tail hawk, and while I didn’t see any red, his talons certainly qualified him to be a hawk of some sort. We did not see any other small creatures in the vicinity. The protection of a nature preserve only goes so far.
