Red-Tailed Hawk

Was on my way out to meet a friend at 5pm when I spotted this:

This fellow was just across on the next building’s fire escape (around 96th near Riverside Dr.) He was eating something that used to have white feathers.

I had to run out, but Tim snapped the rest of these awesome photos.

Note the blood on its talons!

He posed for a portrait before flying off.

Houston- Day 1

Downtown is not much of an attraction. We also saw Rice and the Rothko chapel – where these pictures are from.

Ginger cat with Bluejay
(shortly after, the bluejay got loose and flew straight towards us. We thought it was dead and it really gave us a start. But we were glad that we didn’t get to watch it get eaten!)
