Belle of the Bosque

Belle of the Bosque - Red-tailed Hawk
15 inches wide x 20 inches high

“Several years ago we chanced upon a rufous-morphed Red-tailed Hawk at Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Seeing this beautiful bird left me in awe and she was burned in my memory.

“Sitting in a tree at the edge of a field, she could care less that it was raining or that people in a couple of cars were watching her while others just drove past. This was her turf and she was the Belle of the Bosque.”
