Observation details

This Red-tailed Hawk has shown up several times over the last couple of days and perched in the same tree for 15-30 minutes at a time. Light underneath with a darker belly band. Dark wingtips/edges seen in flight, with a brown head and white throat. The smaller birds don't appear to be alarmed while the pheasants are nervous. It has not made an attempt on the pheasants yet and only watches with interest.
