[singlepic id=68 w=320 h=240 float=left]This proudly perched Red-Tailed Hawk shows such nobility. Chickenhawks, as they are sometimes referred to as are a fascinating bird to me. This avian is so versatile that it is commonly used in falconry. This bird of prey has a certain level of elegence and regal grace that makes it almost the perfect symbol for royalty. Strength and wisdom reflect deep within it’s eyes and is second only to the stature of the American Bald Eagle in my eye.
