Predator
(Click on pic to enlarge, Click on name of Bird for Kids National Geographic Info. on this bird of Prey)
This is probably the most common hawk in North America. If you’ve got sharp eyes you’ll see several individuals on almost any long car ride, anywhere. Red-tailed Hawks soar above open fields, slowly turning circles on their broad, rounded wings. Other times you’ll see them atop telephone poles, eyes fixed on the ground to catch the movements of a vole or a rabbit, or simply waiting out cold weather before climbing a thermal updraft into the sky. —-From All About Birds

The top two pictures I took while I was on Jekyll Island at what they call Jekyll point, it is the very end of one side of the island. The kids and my hubby were rinsing their feet off while waiting for me and the hawk flew in (and stayed), my youngest ran to get me and told me to hurry cause there was a hawk I need to see. I could not believe how close we were to it (right under it) and how long it stayed. It was still there when we left. So I can’t say if the Prey or the Predator one this round =)
