A juvenile red-tailed hawk

In my birding lab this morning, we had a treat:  a bumbling red-tailed juvenile (probably a year old, according to our instructor) that hung around the small woods on campus where we were.  It was a classic juvenile bird, ineffectively trying to catch squirrels, looking scruffy because of feather molting, etc. 

But, it provided us with a LONG look at a very interesting bird.

Here's a link to red-tailed hawk info.

Hmm, maybe I should drag my camera along too, along with the binoculars and iPod Touch (uh, that's for my virtual field guides, not to mention the connection to real-time observations).
