This is Rachel

Meet Rachel. She is the Red Tailed Hawk that has graced us with her presence. I am hoping to get a clearer picture of her, but for now this is the best I've got. She watches closely all that goes on around us. Strangely, I feel protected. I certainly feel privileged to get to see her. She hunts for our gophers and other small game, but she is not above eating a worm or two. She fiercely protects her territory from other feathered creatures as she is hunting. I wonder if she has a nest nearby.
