Ft. Worth Zoo - Red Tailed Hawk

These guys are all over the place, but I can seldom get close enough to get this kind of picture. I love to watch them soar on the thermals and dive for their prey. The intensity of their stare can be scary, even. He was in the Texas Wild area of the zoo, where native animals are on display for closer study than you can usually get out there in the wild.

HE is gorgeous!
Maybe the one I photographed is a baby... or juvenile as you said.
