Some Raptors

Red-tailed Hawk
Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, Willows, CA; NOV 2020

I am sharing images of 3 raptors, i.e., birds of prey. Take note of the image of the White-tailed Kite in the air. It was kiting, its characteristic behavior of hovering over potential prey before it drops down to catch it.
