As I was heading out of the Arboretum, I looked at the top of one of the lamp posts and I saw this guy. He was kind of hanging around, so of course I had to go grab my camera.
I think this is a falcon. Turns out that this is a red-tailed hawk and not a falcon. Thanks to one of my friends for pointing that out. I wish I could have gotten a better angle on him because he was hanging out in front of the helipad. It would have been nice to get a picture of two cool birds.
I was amazed at how close he let me get but I guess falcons are a little more comfortable with people than eagles.
I will have to admit, they are pretty regal looking birds.
But I guess I got a little too close.
However, he didn't fly too far away.
I was still able to get fairly close but I didn't want to cross the tracks.
