Angry Red Tail

He was on the same limb in the same place when I left so my testing didn't get him upset enough to leave.

When I spotted him and got close enough for a few photos he pretty much was ignoring me. I tried my crow call and he got angry. I waited a bit and tried a couple of other calls and he ignored them. I tried the crow call again and he once again got angry. I looked up at him said thanks for your time and left.

Man, that is one cold looking bird - what was the temperature? Is that why you left so quickly (back to the car to get warm again)? :G

Great shots!

Temperature wasn't that bad 1 or 2 degrees Far. He went back to looking like a normal Hawk when I quit with the crow call.

B-r-r-r-r. I guess it is all what you are used to. I'd be so bundled up, that hawk would look positively skinny!

Puffer fish, lizards, insects, and some other critters will make themselves look larger to intimidate predators, but I have never seen a bird do that before. Good capture.
