The prettiest red!!

Tis the time of the year that Holiday decorations surround us all! The reds, greens, silvers, blues and whites...but the prettiest red I've seen recently was this visitor to my backyard. He only spent a few minutes in our tree... but oh, what a beauty he was...and there was no denying that he had a gorgeous red-tail!!

Beautiful and a danger! We have quite the flock here since they no longer shoot the red tails.

People have even lost kittens to them.

A very majestic bird and wonderful pictures.

He's a beaut all right. I'll be helping the National Eagle Center's Golden Eagle survey in March but we are also supposed to note any other raptors we see. It should be fun.
