I’ve noticed this hawk perching in the same area of Ottawa County, Michigan for about a week now. Today I finally had the time to attempt to photograph it. I was pleased to see it again in the general area I expected to find it and was even happier that it allowed me to approach closely enough to capture a detailed photo. I believe it to be a Red Tailed Hawk which are commonly seen along roadsides as they hunt.
