Red-tailed Hawk Shopping at Costco
in West Valley City, Utah
Just as were were leaving Costco, this beautiful Red-tailed Hawk landed
on the fence in front of us and started snacking on a mouse.
Not even our moving in for a closer shot bothered this red-tail.
Marlene had no idea a Black-billed Magpie was divebombing at the time
she took this picture. Not only was the hawk not bothered by
cars, but it completely ignored the magpie as well. Photos ©
