Red-tailed hawk. I saw a couple of hawks (or so I thought) circling around here a few days ago, and today came back home and saw one perching on my balcony railing just like that time in spring (though this time the bird was facing the lake, not my apartment). This time I was more careful, so took a good look at him/her and the red tail, so no googling was necessary to identify. Unfortunately, he/she still doesn’t like photo-shoots, and did not let me take a picture through the open door. So here is what I got.
