Ruffled Feathers -- an atlanta hawk
I believe this is a Red Tailed Hawk, but I could be wrong. My wife noticed him sitting on a fence while we were at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. He sat there for several minutes while I took pictures. I was able to get within a few feet of him, but kept my distance. I knew if he decided he didn’t like me taking pictures anymore, those talons would do some serious damage.
